They explained to her where she was and where should Dorthy stay away from. The Witch of the North is a good witch. The Munchkins told her to visit the Wizard of Oz for help.
Dorthy was walking along the yellow brick road when she came upon a scarecrow. The scarecrow asked Dorthy to help him get down from the pole he was on. The scarecrow wanted a brain. So the scarecrow and Dorthy joined together to see the Great Oz.
Dorthy and the scarecrow walked along the yellow brick road when they came upon a forest. the forest had holes in the ground, trees growing above the yellow brick road, and fallen tree branches. Dorthy asked the scarecrow his story and why he wants a brain.
When Dorthy and the scarecrow made it through the forest they came upon a rusty tin man. They oiled his joints for him. Then the tin man wanted a heart. So he joined Dorthy and the scarecrow in the road to OZ.
Dorothy and her friends came upon a lion. The lion tried to bite Toto and scare the scarecrow and the Woodman. Dorothy went up to the lion and hit his nose. The lion started to cry and Dorothy realized that the lion was a coward. The cowardly lion wants more courage.
