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 fetched by the native Munchkins as a hero, but wants nothing more than to get home. The un-named 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.

Added DiffLines:

* TheresNoPlaceLikeHome: Dorothy's reason for wanting to see the Wizard, to the extent that she almost name-drops the Trope while chatting with the Scarecrow.
-->'''Scarecrow:''' I cannot understand why you should wish to leave this beautiful country and go back to the dry, gray place you call Kansas.\\
'''Dorothy:''' That is because you have no brains. No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home.

The book has received quite a few adaptations since its publication, with the 1939 movie musical ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' becoming the most famous version of the story. While the basic story seems close, the movie did make several deviations and edits. Just a few of the parts that the film either altered or removed include the fact that there are two Good Witches (rather than the film's sole one), a {{Denouement}} journey after the defeat of the Wicked Witch, and (most significantly) the ending, which in the movie implied that Dorothy's adventure was AllJustADream, while in the book it is all most definitely real.
