Dorothy survives a tornado; waking up to find herself in the Merry Old Land Of Oz, far away from her home in Kansas. To get back there, she’ll have to travel to the Emerald City and seek the help of the wonderful Wizard Of Oz himself.
She’ll meet new friends and have adventures along the way – but watch out for a Wicked Witch who’s seeking revenge!
