'The Wizard of Oz' tells the story of Little Dorothy Gale of Kansas, who, like so many girls of her age, often dreams of what may lie over the rainbow. One day a tornado hits her home town and carries her away to Munchkinland - a magical village which sits at the end of the rainbow.
The Munchkins hail Dorothy as a heroine. Dorothy wants to go home to Kansas and seeks the help of the kind Sorceress of the North. Only the great Wizard of Oz, says the Sorceress, can help Dorothy back to Kansas.
Dorothy persuades three friends to accompany her on the trip to the Emerald City to see the Wizard. They are Scarecrow, who lacks a brain, he thinks; the Tin Woodman, who has no heart; and the cowardly Lion, who would like to have some courage.
The Wicked Witch of the West vows vengance on Dorothy and does all she can to stop the friends getting to the Emerald City. They reach the Emerald City and manage to see the Wizard, who will only help them if they kill the Wicked Witch of the West, an impossible task. They do succeed, get all of their wishes and the Wizard accompanies Dorothy back to Kansas in a rocket ship.
