First Appearance

Original Publisher

Created by

L. Frank Baum


King Kik-a-bray is the ruler of the village of Dunkiton.

He has a wide head with big ears and round, solemn eyes. He wears a big gold crown and carries a golden staff between his front hoofs.

His palace is just like the other houses in Dunkiton. There are mats of woven grass on the floor, but no other furniture. His favorite servant is a little brown donkey.

King Kik-a-bray was so impressed by the Shaggy Man's flattering speech when they met, that the king transformed his head into that of a donkey. He then asked Dorothy Gale for an invitation to Ozma of Oz's birthday party, which he was later able to attend.
