The Story of The Wizard of Oz

Dorothy Gale and her little dog Toto are forever getting into trouble on the farm in Kansas.

Alongside her Aunt Em, Uncle Henry and her three hapless farmhand friends, she dreams of traveling to a place where troubles melt like lemon drops over the rainbow. Her wish is granted courtesy of a terrible twister which takes her far away to the magical land of Oz where the beautiful Glinda the Good sends her off down the yellow brick road to the Emerald City. But hot on her ruby heels is the Wicked Witch of the West who is bent on taking over the colourful kingdom. With the help of a scarecrow, a tin man, and a cowardly lion, will Dorothy have the brains, heart and courage to save all of Oz and find her way home?
