a deep growl『#37_オズの魔法使い』



Original and Japanese translation

All this time Dorothy and her companions had been walking through the thick woods.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The road was still paved with yellow brick, but these were much covered by dried branches and dead leaves from the trees, and the walking was not at all good.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


There were few birds in this part of the forest, for birds love the open country where there is plenty of sunshine.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


But now and then there came a deep growl from some wild animal hidden among the trees.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


These sounds made the little girl's heart beat fast, for she did not know what made them; but Toto knew, and he walked close to Dorothy's side, and did not even bark in return.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"How long will it be," the child asked of the Tin Woodman, "before we are out of the forest?"

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"I cannot tell," was the answer, "for I have never been to the Emerald City.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


But my father went there once, when I was a boy, and he said it was a long journey through a dangerous country, although nearer to the city where Oz dwells the country is beautiful.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


But I am not afraid so long as I have my oil-can, and nothing can hurt the Scarecrow, while you bear upon your forehead the mark of the Good Witch's kiss, and that will protect you from harm."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"But Toto!" said the girl anxiously. "What will protect him?"

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"We must protect him ourselves if he is in danger," replied the Tin Woodman.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
