Summary, etc.:
Dorothy is from Kansas, where she lives with her uncle Henry and aunt Em and her dog Toto. Life is quiet until a cyclone drags Dorothy, Toto and the house all the way to the magical Land of Oz. Upon landing in Oz, Dorothy is proclaimed a powerful sorceress for killing the Wicked Witch of the East. Technically it was the house that killed the witch, but since Dorothy owns the house, she is a great and powerful sorceress, at least according to the Munchkins, and really, who can win an argument with a Munchkin? The Good Witch of the North advises Dorothy to seek out the great and powerful Oz of the Emerald City and thus begins Dorothy's great adventure to get home.
