The Wizard of Oz by Victor Fleming( visu )

When a nasty neighbor tries to have her dog put to sleep, Dorothy takes her dog, Toto, and starts to run away. A tornado appears and carries her to the magical land of Oz. Wishing to return home, she begins to travel to the city of Oz where a great wizard lives. On her way she meets a Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who desperately needs courage. They all hope the all-mighty Wizard of Oz will help them, but they have to get to the Emerald City before the Wicked Witch of the West catches up with them
The wonderful wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum( Book )
28 editions published between 1938 and 2010 in English and German and held by 617 libraries worldwide
Dorothy Gale (Garland) plans to run away from her unhappy Kansas farm when she is whisked away in a swirling tornado with her dog Toto and arrives in the fantasy-land of Oz. Dorothy's entrance into the land of Oz remains one of screen history's most memorable moments as the black and white scene gives way to glowing colour photography. Munchkinland is a dream-come true world of enchanted forests, dancing scarecrows, and singing lions. Glinda, the Good Witch of the North tells her to find the Wizard of Oz who can bring her home - to get there she must follow the famous yellow brick road. On the journey she meets the scarecrow, the tin man and the lion (emblematic of the lessons of wisdom, love, devotion and bravery). The Wicked Witch of the West wants Dorothy's red shoes, which she was given as a reward for saving the Munchkins. At the end of the day Dorothy realizes that happiness was in her own back-yard all the time
