In the original book by author and Oz series originator Lyman Frank Baum [May 15, 1856-May 5, 1919], Dorothy Gale and her pet dog Toto met first the welcoming committee of three Munchkinsand the Good Witch of the North, and then other Munchkins such as Boq, who offered them the hospitality of a night's lodging and food, in the Blue Country of the East. On the Yellow Brick Road, Dorothy and Toto met the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. The five friends escaped from the part-bear, part-tiger Kalidahs. The Storkrescued the Scarecrow from a pole in the middle of a deep, wide river. The Tin Woodman rescued the Queen of the Field Micefrom the Great Yellow Wildcat, and so she in turn had her Mice rescue the Cowardly Lion from the deadly poppy fields. The Mother, the Father with an injured leg, and their Two Children, who lived near the Emerald City, offered a night's lodging and food to the five friends. The Guardian of the Gates got the five friends into the Emerald City, and the Soldier with Green Whiskers and the Pretty Green Girlgot the five friends into the Throne Room of the Emerald Palace of Oz. The Wizard of Oz promised to fulfill all requests if the five friends carried out a mission for him. And so the five friends wouldn't be stopped by the wolves, crows, bees, and enslaved Winkies that the Wicked Witch of the West sent out against them. The Winged Monkeysleft the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman for dead, and carried the Cowardly Lion, Dorothy, and Toto off to the Witch's Castle in the Yellow Winkie Country. But Dorothy managed to kill the Witch by throwing a bucket of water on her, and thereby melt her to death. The Wizard's hot air balloon took off without Dorothy and Toto. And so the five friends had to look to Glinda the Good Witch of the South to get Dorothy and Toto back home to Kansas. In order to reach Glinda's Red Quadling Country, the five friends braved the Fighting Trees, the Dainty China Country, the Giant Spider of the Forest, and the Hammer-Heads of the nearby Hill. A Quadling Farmer's Wife fed the five friends, and directed them to the Red Castle, where the Soldier Girls led them to the Ruby Throne Room. And then Dorothy and Toto got back home thanks to the secret power of the Silver Slippers of the Wicked Witch of the East; and the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion went to rule in their respective kingdoms of Winkieland, the Emerald City, and the Forest. In the 1939 film version, the farmhouse in which the cyclone carried Dorothy and Toto off from Kansas landed on top of, and killed, the Wicked Witch of the East. The two then met the Munchkin Coroner, Lollipop Guild and Lullaby League members, and Mayor; Glinda the Good Witch; and the Wicked Witch of the West in Munchkinland. On the Yellow Brick Road, they met the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. In the Emerald City of Oz, the five friends met Manicurists, Residents, and the Wizard of Oz. In Winkieland, they met the Winged Monkeys, and the Winkie Guard and its Captain. Glinda the Good explained the secret power of the Ruby Slippers of the Wicked Witch of the East, to Dorothy and Toto. And so the shoes get the two back home. Or had everyone whom Dorothy and Toto met in the beautiful, enchanted, magical land of Oz all been a dream?
