Chapter 12 ~ The Search for the Wicked Witch
Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion set out to find the Wicked Witch. With her magic eye, the Wicked Witch sees them coming. She sends wolves, crows, bees, and the Winkies to stop them. All of these plans fail. Finally the Wicked Witch summons the Winged Monkeys. They are able to throw the Tin Woodman on the rocks and take all the stuffing out of the Scarecrow.
The Winged Monkeys take Dorothy, Toto, and the Lion to the Wicked Witch’s palace. The Wicked Witch cages the Lion. She tells him he will not be allowed to eat until he pulls her chariot like a horse. Dorothy works for the Wicked Witch. In the evenings, Dorothy is able to sneak food to the Lion.
The Wicked Witch devises a trick to get the silver shoes from Dorothy. She places an invisible bar in the middle of the floor. Dorothy trips over the bar and loses one shoe. Dorothy is so angry at the Wicked Witch for this that she throws a bucket of water over her. As the water hits the Wicked Witch, she melts. Dorothy and the Lion are now free of the Wicked Witch.
