Like so many children her age, Dorothy Gale dreams longingly of what lies over the rainbow. Until one day, a twister hits her farm in Kansas and carries her away to an enchanting technicolour world. On her exciting adventure along the yellow brick road, Dorothy and her little dog Toto encounter some delightfully unexpected friends.
