Dorothy lives a peaceful though dull life on the Kansas prairie with Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. When Dorothy and her dog Toto are carried off by a tornado to the land of Oz, magical adventures begin. To get back home, Dorothy must avoid the Wicked Witch and travel the yellow brick road with the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion to meet the Wizard of Oz. Each of the friends is searching for something; they face many dangers on their quest, while their answers may be closer than they think. This unabridged version of L. Frank Baum's classic childhood story was first published in the United States in 1900.
