Chapter4 The Road Through the Forest

While they were traveling, Dorothy and the Scarecrow introduced themselves to each other.

The Scarecrow didn't understand why Dorothy wanted to go back to a boring gray place called Kansas from such a beautiful place.

I found the famous phrase here: "There is no place like home". That phrase was originally from the lyrics of the song "Home Sweet Home."

I like the Scarecrow's words, "If your heads were stuffed with straw, like mine, you would probably all live in the beautiful places, and then Kansas would have no people at all. It is fortunate for Kansas that you have brains."

What kind of people are fond of Kansas? People who have brains or people whose brains are straw? What do you think? I think it is a good satire. Sometimes people who are very smart think too much, and at a result, forget their real goals. Don't you think so?

In the midst of the woods, when night fell, Dorothy's group found a vacant cottage and entered it. While Dorothy and Toto were sleeping, the Scarecrow stood stock still in the corner of the room until daybreak. You can see that somehow they had already found their roles: Dorothy is a boss, Toto is a boss's pet, and the Scarecrow is an attendant.
