The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Even with eyes protected by the green spectacles, Dorothy and her friends were at first dazzled by the brilliancy of the wonderful City.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The streets were lined with beautiful houses all built of green marble and studded everywhere with sparkling emeralds.

They walked over a pavement of the same green marble, and where the blocks were joined together were rows of emeralds, set closely, and glittering in the brightness of the sun.

The window panes were of green glass; even the sky above the City had a green tint, and the rays of the sun were green.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


There were many people–men, women, and children–walking about, and these were all dressed in green clothes and had greenish skins.

They looked at Dorothy and her strangely assorted company with wondering eyes, and the children all ran away and hid behind their mothers when they saw the Lion; but no one spoke to them.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Many shops stood in the street, and Dorothy saw that everything in them was green.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Green candy and green pop corn were offered for sale, as well as green shoes, green hats, and green clothes of all sorts.

At one place a man was selling green lemonade, and when the children bought it Dorothy could see that they paid for it with green pennies.
