The Wonderful Wizard of Oz follows the adventures of a young girl named Dorothy Gale in the Land of Oz, after being swept away from her Kansas farm home in a cyclone. Dorothy quickly teams up with a cowardly lion, a scarecrow and a tin man, and they set out on a quest to find the Wizard of Oz. They soon find out that the wizard is not quite who they expect, and that they must seek Glinda, the Good Witch of the South. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is one of the best-known stories in American popular culture and has been widely translated. Its initial success, and the success of the 1902 Broadway musical which Baum adapted from his original story, led to the famous 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz, and the 2003 musical, Wicked.
