So she chose a number of the Winkies who looked as if they knew the most, and they all started away.

They traveled that day and part of the next until they came to the rocky plain where the Tin Woodman lay, all battered and bent.

His axe was near him, but the blade was rusted and the handle broken off short.

The Winkies lifted him tenderly in their arms, and carried him back to the Yellow Castle again, Dorothy shedding a few tears by the way at the sad plight of her old friend, and the Lion looking sober and sorry.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


When they reached the castle Dorothy said to the Winkies:

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"Are any of your people tinsmiths?"

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"Oh, yes. Some of us are very good tinsmiths," they told her.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


"Then bring them to me," she said.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


And when the tinsmiths came, bringing with them all their tools in baskets, she inquired, "Can you straighten out those dents in the Tin Woodman, and bend him back into shape again, and solder him together where he is broken?"
