Dorotea lives in Mexico City with her mom, when business takes her away she is forced to spend the summer in Kansas with her Tía Em! She’s in a new country, speaking a new language and feels out of place! Suddenly a tornado sends her to OZ where she meets some familiar friends and some wicked foes! When Dorotea’s house squashes the Wicked Witch of the East, she is thanked by the, now freed, Munchkins and given the witch’s slippers (are those Prada?). Dorotea meets all of your favorite characters; the Scarecrow (and his singing group – the Crow Bars), El León and Tinman! They all head out to see if the Wonderful Wizard of Oz will send Dorotea home. While on their way, they battle the Wicked Witch of the West, who is determined to get revenge for the death of her sister. You will love the fun scenes, like meeting the Gillikin people and encountering the enchanted poppies. Eventually, Glinda the Good Witch and her sister Locasta help Dorothy defeat the evil witch and her winged monkeys. The great and powerful wizard grants Dorotea’s friends their wishes and of course, helps Dorothy return to Kansas.
