Painted Mouth『#23_オズの魔法使い』



Original and Japanese translation

After a few hours the road began to be rough, and the walking grew so difficult that the Scarecrow often stumbled over the yellow bricks, which were here very uneven.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Sometimes, indeed, they were broken or missing altogether, leaving holes that Toto jumped across and Dorothy walked around.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


As for the Scarecrow, having no brains, he walked straight ahead, and so stepped into the holes and fell at full length on the hard bricks.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


It never hurt him, however, and Dorothy would pick him up and set him upon his feet again, while he joined her in laughing merrily at his own mishap.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The farms were not nearly so well cared for here as they were farther back.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


There were fewer houses and fewer fruit trees, and the farther they went the more dismal and lonesome the country became.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


At noon they sat down by the roadside, near a little brook, and Dorothy opened her basket and got out some bread.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


She offered a piece to the Scarecrow, but he refused.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"I am never hungry," he said, "and it is a lucky thing I am not, for my mouth is only painted, and if I should cut a hole in it so I could eat, the straw I am stuffed with would come out, and that would spoil the shape of my head."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Dorothy saw at once that this was true, so she only nodded and went on eating her bread.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
