Rich Munchkin『#18_オズの魔法使い』和訳



Original and Japanese translation

The people greeted Dorothy kindly, and invited her to supper and to pass the night with them; for this was the home of one of the richest Munchkins in the land, and his friends were gathered with him to celebrate their freedom from the bondage of the Wicked Witch.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Dorothy ate a hearty supper and was waited upon by the rich Munchkin himself, whose name was Boq.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Then she sat upon a settee and watched the people dance.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


When Boq saw her silver shoes he said, "You must be a great sorceress."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"Why?" asked the girl.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"Because you wear silver shoes and have killed the Wicked Witch. Besides, you have white in your frock, and only witches and sorceresses wear white."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"My dress is blue and white checked," said Dorothy, smoothing out the wrinkles in it.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"It is kind of you to wear that," said Boq.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"Blue is the color of the Munchkins, and white is the witch color. So we know you are a friendly witch."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Dorothy did not know what to say to this, for all the people seemed to think her a witch, and she knew very well she was only an ordinary little girl who had come by the chance of a cyclone into a strange land.
