The witch told Dorothy that she was in the land of Oz, which
was ruled by a great magician. He was the Wizard of Oz and
lived in the Emerald City.
Dorothy was worried. She wanted to go home to her uncle
and aunt in Kansas. The kind witch said,
You must speak to the Wizard of Oz, he alone can help
you. And she showed her the pathway to the Emerald City.
The young girl and her little dog get off with the witch's
blessing. She gave Dorothy a pair of magic silver shoes and a
kiss that would protect her. On the road, she met a scarecrow
He too wished to see the Wizard of Oz to ask him for a brain
to put inside his straw head.
Then she met a tin man who wanted
to see the Wizard to ask
for a heart for his ten body. Then she came across a cowardly
lion. He wanted to become brave
because he was a coward,
which is very embarrassing for a lion.
Dorothy traveled along the road
with Toto and her new
friends, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion. After many
adventures they arrived at the
Emerald City. The city
sparkled with a magnificent green light. The guard at the city
gates let them in. he gave them
each a pair of special glasses
so that they wouldn't be blinded
by the brilliance
splendid city. But before presenting them to the all powerful
Wizard of Oz,
explained to them that the wizard could appear to them in any
shape or form. Dorothy was the
first to be seen by the Wizard. He
appeared to her as a huge head
with no body arms or legs.
