Chapter 11 ~ The Wonderful City of Oz
Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion are told that they can all see the Great Oz but only one per day. Dorothy is led to a beautiful green room to spend the night. The next morning Dorothy and Toto go into the Throne Room to see Oz. He looks like a giant head. Oz tells Dorothy she must kill the Wicked Witch of the West before he will help her get back to Kansas.
After Dorothy first sees Oz, she tells her friends what he looks like. Scarecrow expects to see a giant head also. He is startled by the appearance of a beautiful lady. Oz tells the Scarecrow he must kill the Wicked Witch of the West. Oz is the one taken aback when Scarecrow questions him and says that he thought killing the Wicked Witch was Dorothy’s quest. He answers that he doesn’t care who kills the Witch as long as the job is done.
Next Tin Woodman goes to see Oz. He is not sure what to expect since Dorothy and Scarecrow have both relayed their visits. Woodman sees a terrifying beast. The Great Oz tells him to join Dorothy and Scarecrow in the quest to kill the Wicked Witch.
Finally Lion goes into the Throne Room. He acts bravely with a plan for besting the three forms of Oz. Lion meets a foe he can not best, a ball of fire.
