The Road of Yellow Brick, by Reed Beebe
“You have to see the Wizard,” said the talking wolf.
“What?” asked the stranger from the crashed balloon.
“The Wizard can help you get back home, like he did for Dorothy.”
“A girl from Kansas. Heard of Kansas?”
“Good. The Wizard can help you. We will go to the Emerald City together.”
“Well, sir, you’re no wolf, but I feel a kinship with you. I’m happy to help.”
“How do we get there?”
“We follow the road of yellow brick. And soon we’ll see the Wizard.”
Good, thought the stranger. Hopefully before the next full moon.
