Yellow Road『#16_オズの魔法使い』和訳



Original and Japanese translation

"They surely will never do for a long journey, Toto," she said.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


And Toto looked up into her face with his little black eyes and wagged his tail to show he knew what she meant.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


At that moment Dorothy saw lying on the table the silver shoes that had belonged to the Witch of the East.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"I wonder if they will fit me," she said to Toto. "They would be just the thing to take a long walk in, for they could not wear out."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


She took off her old leather shoes and tried on the silver ones, which fitted her as well as if they had been made for her.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Finally she picked up her basket.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"Come along, Toto," she said. "We will go to the Emerald City and ask the Great Oz how to get back to Kansas again."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


She closed the door, locked it, and put the key carefully in the pocket of her dress.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


And so, with Toto trotting along soberly behind her, she started on her journey.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


There were several roads nearby, but it did not take her long to find the one paved with yellow bricks.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Within a short time she was walking briskly toward the Emerald City, her silver shoes tinkling merrily on the hard, yellow road-bed.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The sun shone bright and the birds sang sweetly, and Dorothy did not feel nearly so bad as you might think a little girl would who had been suddenly whisked away from her own country and set down in the midst of a strange land.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
