K is for Kalidah

Illustration by W.W. Denslow

With the heads of a tiger and the body of a bear, I think the Kalidah would be a great creature for the Garden of Kama setting, even though it doesn't come from any eastern mythology. Instead it comes from Frank Baum's "The Wizard of Oz", from whence this illustration comes.


  1. I should read the book. Loved the movie, and I also loved the recent adaptation on the SyFy Channel.

    Visiting from the A to Z Challenge. We're doing guest post writing tips.

  2. Hello! I love the original illustrations from the Oz books!! That's such a good series. I haven't read them in a long time, though. I think it's time for an Oz series re-read!

    Have a great week and happy A to Z!!

  3. that's great! I do love everything Oz
    Happy A-Zing!
