The final story of the 2009/2010 flipbook edition of Oziana, from the 2010 side, is "Invisible Fence" by J. L. Bell, with illustrations by David Lee Ingersoll. When Dorothy uses the Magic Belt to take her to the Wizard, she finds him in the midst of an undercover investigation with the Tin Soldier and Snif the Iffin into illegal magic in the midst of a Gillikin forest. They must take her into their confidence, and Dorothy ends up assisting. The group manage to capture a young boy and his cat who are bartering magic items from their home. In the Emerald City, the prisoners are looked after by Tollydiggle, but they still almost break out in spite of the magic invisible fence around the prison. Clearly things are not as cut and dried as things look, but the wild card proves to be Ozma, who recognizes one of the defendants at the trial, which puts things in a whole new light.
There is, as I'm sure you can guess, a lot more to this story, but I don't dare say any more. This is a tightly woven story, and any attempt to explain further would unravel it for anyone who hasn't read it but may want to in the future. But it is a very satisfying story in the end, and as happens in the best of all Oz stories, everything works out in the end. But what an interesting journey to get there! One thing that struck me during this reading, though, is just how well J. L. Bell understands the Oz books and its characters. He is not afraid to dig deep into the series for a character or a story hook, and he uses them well without completely rehashing what has done before. This is a rare trait in any writer, but especially one digging around in someone else's sandbox as he does with Oz.
