Chapter 13 ~ The Rescue
The Winkies feast and dance to celebrate their freedom from the Wicked Witch of the East. Dorothy and the Lion do not feel like a celebration because their friends are not with them. They ask the Winkies for help. First the Winkies, Dorothy, and the Lion find the Tin Woodman. After three days and four nights of repairs, he is as good as new. Then the group goes out to rescue the Scarecrow. He is put back together and stuffed with fresh straw. The Winkies ask the Tin Woodman to stay and be their ruler; however, he wants to return to the Emerald City with the others to receive his heart. The Winkies give each person a special gift made of gold and diamonds before they leave.
