Cozy Classic - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
THE COZY VERSION
Dorothy leads a quiet life with her aunt and uncle on a farm in Kansas. One day, Dorothy and her dog Toto are swept up in a cyclone, house and all. When they finally come to a stop in a strange new land, Dorothy discovers the house has crushed the Wicked Witch of the East! The Munchkins, who were under her evil spell, rejoice, and the Witch of the North gives Dorothy the Wicked Witch’s ruby slippers.
As Dorothy follows the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City, where she hopes to find the Wizard of Oz—and a way home—she meets the Scarecrow, who wants a brain; the Tin Woodman, who wants a heart; and the Cowardly Lion, who wants courage. Together they travel to the Emerald City and ask the Great Wizard for help. He agrees, but only if they defeat the Wicked Witch of the West!
The Wicked Witch of the West sends flying monkeys to capture Dorothy and her friends, then tricks Dorothy out of one of her ruby slippers. Riled, Dorothy throws a bucket of water on the Wicked Witch—who melts away! The Witch of the North explains that the ruby slippers will take Dorothy wherever she wants to go. After a tearful farewell, Dorothy claps the heels of her shoes three times and says, “Take me home to Aunt Em!”
