When a tornado rips through Alex’s native Kansas, he and his trusty dog Boning are whisked away to the magical land of 20 Cooper Square. There, they follow the Yellow Brick Road to meet the Wizard: Cora Daniels. On the way, they befriend Sabena the Scarecrow, Louise the Lion, and Ebrima the tin man. They are confronted by Alex’s arch-nemesis, Yue the Wicked of the West and her thugs Laura, Emily, Lauren and Ziyu the flying monkeys. Love wins in the end and now Alex is in journalism school. Berto was there too.
