Say hello to Ruth. Hello, Ruth. After L. Frank Baum died, Ruth was chosen to carry on with the Oz stories, and so she did, turning out an Oz book a year through the 1920s and 1930s. One of her tales, The Gnome King of Oz, was a particular favorite of mine when I was eleven. She loved adverbs, as well she should have with the middle name of Plumly. There, that’s it. Plumly. Plumly, my new character named in her honor, will soon appear.
