The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

It was lucky the Scarecrow and the Woodman were wide awake and heard the wolves coming.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


“This is my fight,” said the Woodman, “so get behind me and I will meet them as they come.”

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


He seized his axe, which he had made very sharp, and as the leader of the wolves came on the Tin Woodman swung his arm and chopped the wolf’s head from its body, so that it immediately died.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


As soon as he could raise his axe another wolf came up, and he also fell under the sharp edge of the Tin Woodman’s weapon.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


There were forty wolves, and forty times a wolf was killed, so that at last they all lay dead in a heap before the Woodman.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Then he put down his axe and sat beside the Scarecrow, who said, “It was a good fight, friend.”
