I recently read the Wonderful Wizard of Oz book and I found a bunch of differences from the movie. For those of you who want to read it, I won’t spoil anything. First, the sparkly red shoes Dorothy had weren’t real, they were silver! Second, the tin man had a backstory, I forget if this was in the movie, but the tin man used to be a person. Third, there were animals that tried to kill Dorothy that weren’t related to the wicked witch of the west at all. Next, the lion almost died in the sleeping flowers but mice saved him. The wizard of oz also took three forms at different times. The head, a lady, and a fireball. Not only that, the flying monkeys could only be commanded by a hat the wicked witch wore, they weren’t some army she had. Last, after Dorothy kills the witch, she has to embark on another journey that wasn’t at all mentioned in the book! The movie and book of the wizard of oz are much different.
