THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF THE OZ
WRITTEN BY- L. Frank Baum

3 min read

This story was written by L. Frank Baum, an American author in 1900.

Some characters in the story were Dorothy, Aunt Em, Uncle Henry,  Toto, The Wizard of the Oz, Scarecrow,  The cowardly lion, The Tin Woodsman,  monkey Nikko , the witch of the west, east and north, south , etc. 

The story contains many imaginary places.Mr. Baum has made a fictional map for his story that is shown below -

As you can see above there were 4 different countries:Munchkin,Gillikins , Quailing and Winkie.The center of the Marvelous land of Oz is the Emerald City where the Wizard of Oz lived. Some  other parts in the story are yellow brick road and deadly desert.

 The problem in the story was that Dorothy's house was carried away by the cyclone from Kansas to The land of Oz.The cyclone gently landed the house in The Land of Oz but to Dorothy's surprise the house smooshed the Wicked Witch of the East.The Munchkins,the people who lived in the Eastern Country was very thankful to Dorothy as the witch was very wicked and the house smooshed it.The wicked witch disappeared but the only thing that was left was her silver shoe. Nobody knew the use of it.The Good Witch of the North had a conversation with Dorothy and told her she has to go all the way to the Emerald City where The Wizard of the Oz  lived and he could help her. She met many friends on the way. On the way she met the scarecrow who wanted to have brains,Tin Woodsman who wanted to have a heart and a cowardly lion who wanted to have courage.They all decided to help Dorothy.When they finally met The Wizard of The Oz, he told they have to kill the Wicked Witch of the West for him to help them.They went all the way to Winkie and poured water over the witch which melted her.Then they went back to the Wizard and the wizard said that he could fulfill the lion, scarecrow and Tin Woodman's wish but not Dorothy's because he didn't know what to do and also revealed his identity. Later the companions traveled to in the land of Oz and met the Good Witch of the South who told them the use of the silver shoes and helped  Dorothy and the companions as well.Before long Dorothy had arrived home.She saw Uncle Henry had built another farm house after the old one was carried by the cyclone.Then, the family lived happily. 

My favorite part was when Dorothy met her friends and the way they helped them was just awesome.I also like when she met her family.

Some of the most used figurative languages in the story are simile, metaphor and personification.Like referring un-living thing as alive or comparing something with other thing.

I would like to recommend this book to my friends because it is very interesting, creative and full of twists.
