Dorothy lives in a small house in Kansas. One day, this house was blowed by a cyclone, and she and her dog called Toto was in the house. They arrived a starange country called Oz. They go to see the Wizard of Oz in the Emerald City to know how to return to Kansas, making new friends.I had not known this story, but I had heard this story's title. So I enjoyed reading this story.I thought that she is a very kind and brave girl. She comes across alot of difficulty till she grants a wish, but I think that it was good that finally she come back for Kansas safety.

Pictures of the book are so cute. So, I read it. A phrase of the Scarecrow impressed me."You need a lot of things! But you have brains, and you can think, and that's wonderful."I thought about my life. And I noticed I am living in a lot of things. Why we cannot be satisfied our life? Is not it wonderful?
