The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

But Dorothy they did not harm at all.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


She stood, with Toto in her arms, watching the sad fate of her comrades and thinking it would soon be her turn.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The leader of the Winged Monkeys flew up to her, his long, hairy arms stretched out and his ugly face grinning terribly; but he saw the mark of the Good Witch's kiss upon her forehead and stopped short, motioning the others not to touch her.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"We dare not harm this little girl," he said to them, "for she is protected by the Power of Good, and that is greater than the Power of Evil. All we can do is to carry her to the castle of the Wicked Witch and leave her there."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


So, carefully and gently, they lifted Dorothy in their arms and carried her swiftly through the air until they came to the castle, where they set her down upon the front doorstep. Then the leader said to the Witch:

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"We have obeyed you as far as we were able.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow are destroyed, and the Lion is tied up in your yard. 

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The little girl we dare not harm, nor the dog she carries in her arms.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Your power over our band is now ended, and you will never see us again."

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Then all the Winged Monkeys, with much laughing and chattering and noise, flew into the air and were soon out of sight.
