Dorothy, an orphan, lives in a one-room house with her uncle and aunt. A tornado appears and Dorothy and her pet dog are carried away by the winds. Dorothy falls asleep as the house flies through the air.
When she awakens and goes outside her house, she finds she is in a strange and beautiful country, where there live small, strangely-dressed people known as the Munchkins. Dorothy's house has fallen on the Wicked Witch of the East, ruler of the Munchkins. The Good Witch of the North tells Dorothy to go to the Emerald City, ruled by the Wizard of Oz, in the hope that the Wizard may be able to help the little girl return home.
On her way to the Wizard's city, Dorothy makes three unusual friends: a scarecrow who complains of having no brains, a woodman made entirely of tin who complains of having no heart, and a lion who complains of having no courage. They go with Dorothy to see if the Wizard can help them....
This book is rewritten from "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum (1856–1919), American author of children's books. This story has been made into films a number of times.
