Chapter21 The Lion Becomes the King of Beasts

The Cowardly Lion, who had paled in comparison to the other members, made a great performance. He beat a big spider-like monster by himself. "Bravery" includes "fighting in spite of one's fear", I think. But The Lion's bravery which he didn't have fear at all is brilliant!

Before the fight with the moster, he made a promise with the animals living in the woods to welcome him as their king after he beat the monster. Haha, he is shrewd:)

By the way, in Oz, no one is supposed to die, however, in the first book, that rule seems not to apply. The Wicked Witch of the East, the Wicked Witch of the West, the linx, the wolves, the craws, the bees...and this spider-like monster. Well, in fact, no one has said "Nobody can die in Oz" yet. When did that rule begin? At least, in the first book, the rule seems not to exist.


  1. I think the "no one in Oz can die" thing was first mentioned in Road, and expanded in later books.

  2. Nathan,
    Oh, I see. I didn't know it. Thank you!
