Dorothy is a little girl from Kansas whose farmhouse is carried away to Oz by a tornado, with her and her dog Toto inside. The tornado drops the house on the WickedWitch of the East, killing her. Dorothy is quickly hailed by the native Munchkins as a hero, but wants nothing more than to get home. The unnamed Good Witch of the North is sympathetic, but unfortunately has never heard of this strange place called "Kansas". So she gives Dorothy the wicked witch's silver shoes, kisses her on the forehead for magical protection, and sends her off to the capital -- the [[CityOfGold Emerald City]] -- to ask the Wizard who rules there for his advice.

* ChekhovsGun: The Tornado actually set in motion the plots for later books. [[spoiler:In order to cope with the residual stress from Dorothy being carried away, Uncle Henry decides to take a vacation. Dorothy joins him, but ends up in Oz a second time after being blown overboard from their ship. Later, the destruction of their house and farm via that tornado took a toll on Henry and Em's finances, leaving them unable to afford to live anywhere. Dorothy and Ozma bring them to Oz so they would never need to worry about money again.]]

* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Downplayed. It is mentioned that "if Dorothy had not been lying on the soft bed she might have been hurt" when the house hit the ground, but in real life it would have taken a lot more than a soft bed to protect her from being injured or even killed by the impact. Possibly {{Justified}} by this being Oz and not earth.

* MadeASlaveMadeASlave: The Witch of the West does this to Dorothy since she can't harm her due to the protection spell the Witch of the North placed upon her. She also attempts to do this with the Cowardly Lion, but he threatens to attack her if she comes near, so she tries to starve him into submission. It doesn't work because Dorothy sneaks him food in the middle of the night.
