This retelling of The Wizard of Oz is a drugged dream that Susie has while have her tonsils taken out. The abstract concepts from the original story were replaced by more concrete objects (i.e. “courage” became “a flashlight”), with the exception of the wish to go home. There were references to the 1939 movie, but the world was entirely constructed of the trappings of a child’s world – a hopscotch road, a merry-go-round, a petting zoo, bunny slippers, a playground, even a bouncy castle. It was cute, if a bit odd.
