Information about getting Dorothy, her pet dog Toto and their three friends where they need to go in the book and information about wicked witches, magic shoes, and getting back home in the movie are what Glinda the Good says to Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz."

Specifically, Dorothy Gale has just one interaction with Glinda in the original 1900 book edition of "The Wizard of Oz." It is in the next to the last chapter, 23, when "The Good Witch Grants Dorothy's Wish." The Lion, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman learn that they respectively will be carried by the Winged Monkeys to the Great Forest beyond the Hammer-Head Country, the Emerald City, and the Yellow West Country of the Winkies. Dorothy learns that all she has to do is knock the heels of the magic shoes together three times, give the destination and find herself there in the wink of an eye.

In contrast, in the beloved 1939 film version, Dorothy has two interactions with Glinda. In the first, she learns that bad witches are always ugly, that the magic shoes of the Wicked Witch of the East must not leave her feet because of their great powers, that Oz is not safe because of the Wicked Witch of the West's hatred and powers and that the Wizard can be accessed by broom sticking to the Emerald City or walking down the Yellow Brick Road. In the second interaction, at the end of Dorothy's stay, Glinda tells Dorothy to close her eyes, make the heels of the magic shoes tap together three times and say "There is no place like home."
