She desperately wants to return home and so she begins to travel to the Emerald City where a great wizard lives. On her way she meets a Scarecrow who wants a brain, a Tin Man who desires a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who needs courage. They all hope that the Wizard of Oz will help them, before the Wicked Witch of the West catches them…
