This Week's Oz Short Story

The second story from the 1979 issue of Oziana is "Hank and the Scarecrow of Oz" by Robert R. Pattrick. It's a fun little slice-of-life story in which Hank the Mule, after a conversation with the Scarecrow, decides he needs an education, and so the two of them head out towards the Wogglebug's college. But they get lost along the way, and end up in a very different kind of school, where Hank learns some hard lessons. It's a fun tale, and we definitely see some personal growth in Hank. The two characters also work well together.
