The Wonderful Emoji Wizard Of Oz!

We heard a few weeks ago that emoji was the fastest growing language so we decided to see weather it would be possible to re tell and bring a classic childrens story into the 21st century using emojis. For this I used the opening chapter of The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum.

Hope you enjoy,

Peace!

Dorothy lived in the midst of the great Kansas prairies, with Uncle Henry, who was ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ farmer, and Aunt Em, who was the farmer’s wife. Their ๐Ÿ  was small, for the lumber to ๐Ÿ‘ท it had to be carried by wagon many miles. There were4๏ธโƒฃ walls, ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ floor and ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ roof, which made1๏ธโƒฃ room; and this room contained ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ rusty looking cookstove, ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ cupboard for the dishes, ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ table,3๏ธโƒฃ or 4๏ธโƒฃ chairs, and the beds. Uncle Henry and Aunt Em had ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ big bed in1๏ธโƒฃ corner, and Dorothy ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ little bed in another corner. There was ๐Ÿ˜ฃ garret at all, and ๐Ÿ˜ฃ cellar–except ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ small โ›ณ dug in the ground, called ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ๐ŸŒ€ cellar, where the ๐Ÿ‘ช could go in case1๏ธโƒฃ of those great whirlwinds arose, mighty enough to ๐Ÿ˜Š any ๐Ÿฐ in ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น path. It was reached by ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ trap ๐Ÿšช in the middle of the floor, from which ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ladder led down into the small, ๐Ÿ”ฆ โ›ณ.
When Dorothy stood in the doorway and looked around, she could ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿˆš but the great ๐ŸŒ” prairie ๐Ÿ”› every side. Not ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ๐Ÿƒ nor ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ๐Ÿ  broke the broad sweep of flat ๐Ÿ—พ that reached to the edge of the ๐ŸŒ™ in allโ˜๏ธ. The ๐Ÿ”… had baked the plowed land into ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ๐ŸŒ” mass, with little cracks ๐Ÿƒ through it. Even the ๐ŸŒฑ was not ๐Ÿ‰, for the ๐Ÿ”… had burned the ๐Ÿ”ผ of the long ๐Ÿ”ช until they were the same ๐ŸŒ” color to be seen everywhere. Once the ๐Ÿ  had been painted, but the ๐Ÿ”… blistered the ๐ŸŽจ and the ๐ŸŒ‚ washed it away, and now the ๐Ÿ  was as dull and ๐ŸŒ” as everything else.
When Aunt Em came there to live she was ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ young, pretty wife. The ๐Ÿ”… and ๐Ÿ’จ had changed her, too. They had taken the ๐ŸŒŸ from her ๐Ÿ‘€ andโ—€๏ธ them ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ sober ๐ŸŒ”; they had taken the ๐Ÿ‘น from her cheeks and ๐Ÿ‘„, and they were ๐ŸŒ” also. She was thin and gaunt, and never smiled now. When Dorothy, who was an orphan, first came to her, Aunt Em had been ๐Ÿ†˜ startled by the child’s laughter that she would ๐Ÿ˜ฑ and ๐Ÿ“ฐ her ๐Ÿ‘ upon herโค๏ธ whenever Dorothy’s merry voice reached her ๐Ÿ‘‚; and she still looked at the little ๐Ÿ‘ถ with wonder that she could find anything to ๐Ÿ˜„ at.
Uncle Henry never laughed. He worked hard from โ›… till ๐Ÿ˜ด and did not know ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜€ was. He was ๐ŸŒ” also, from ๐Ÿ long beard to ๐Ÿ rough ๐Ÿ‘ข, and he looked stern and solemn, and rarely spoke.
It was Toto that made Dorothy ๐Ÿ˜„, and saved her from growing as ๐ŸŒ” as her other surroundings. Toto was not ๐ŸŒ”; he was ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ little black ๐Ÿฉ, with long silky ๐Ÿ’ˆ and small black ๐Ÿ‘€ that twinkled merrily ๐Ÿ”› either side of ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ˜„, wee ๐Ÿ‘ƒ. Toto played all day long, and Dorothy played with him, and loved him dearly.
Today, however, they were not playing. Uncle Henry sat upon the doorstep and looked anxiously at the ๐ŸŒ™, which was even grayer than usual. Dorothy stood in the ๐Ÿšช with Toto in her ๐Ÿ’ช, and looked at the ๐ŸŒ™ too. Aunt Em was washing the dishes.
From the far north they heard ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ low wail of the ๐Ÿ’จ, and Uncle Henry and Dorothy could ๐Ÿ‘€ where the long ๐ŸŒฑ bowed in ๐Ÿ‘‹ before the coming storm. There now came ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ sharp whistling in the ๐Ÿ’จ from the south, and as they turned their ๐Ÿ‘€ thatโ†•๏ธ they saw ripples in the ๐ŸŒฑ coming from that โ˜๏ธ also.
Suddenly Uncle Henry stood ๐Ÿ†™.
“There’s ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ๐ŸŒ€ coming, Em”, he called to ๐Ÿ wife. “I’ll go ๐Ÿ‘€ after the stock”. Then he ran toward the sheds where the ๐Ÿ‚ and ๐Ÿด were kept.
Aunt Em dropped her ๐Ÿข and came to the ๐Ÿšช.1๏ธโƒฃ glance told her of the ๐Ÿฏ close at ๐Ÿ‘.
“Quick, Dorothy”! she screamed. “Run for the cellar”!
Toto jumped out of Dorothy’s ๐Ÿ’ช and hid under the bed, and the ๐Ÿ‘ถ started to ๐Ÿ‰ him. Aunt Em, badly frightened, threw open the trap ๐Ÿšช in the floor and climbed down the ladder into the small, ๐Ÿ”ฆ โ›ณ. Dorothy caught Toto at last and started to follow her aunt. When she was halfway across the room there came ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ great shriek from the ๐Ÿ’จ, and the ๐Ÿ  shook ๐Ÿ†˜ hard that she lost her footing and sat down suddenly upon the floor.
Then ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ strange thing happened.
The ๐Ÿ  whirled aroundโœŒ๏ธ or 3๏ธโƒฃ โŒš and ๐ŸŒน slowly through the ๐Ÿ’จ. Dorothy felt as if she were going ๐Ÿ†™ in ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ๐ŸŽˆ.
The north and south ๐Ÿ’จ met where the ๐Ÿ  stood, and made it the exact center of the ๐ŸŒ€. In the middle of ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ๐ŸŒ€ the ๐Ÿ’จ is generally still, but the great pressure of the ๐Ÿ’จ ๐Ÿ”› every side of the ๐Ÿ  raised it ๐Ÿ†™ higher and higher, until it was at the very ๐Ÿ”ผ of the ๐ŸŒ€; and there it remained and was carried miles and miles away as easily as you could carry ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ feather.
It was very ๐Ÿ”ฆ, and the ๐Ÿ’จ howled horribly around her, but Dorothy found she was riding quite easily. After the first few whirls around, and1๏ธโƒฃ other โŒš when the ๐Ÿ  tipped badly, she felt as if she were being rocked gently, ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘ถ in ๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ cradle.
Toto did not ๐Ÿ˜„ it. He ran about the room, now ๐Ÿ“Œ, now there, barking loudly; but Dorothy sat quite still ๐Ÿ”› the floor and waited to ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ would happen.
Once Toto got too near the open trap ๐Ÿšช, and fell in; and at first the little ๐Ÿ‘ถ thought she had lost him. But ๐Ÿ”œ she saw1๏ธโƒฃ of ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ‘‚ sticking ๐Ÿ†™ through the โ›ณ, for the ๐Ÿ’ช pressure of the ๐Ÿ’จ was keeping him ๐Ÿ†™ ๐Ÿ†˜ that he could not ๐ŸŒป. She crept to the โ›ณ, caught Toto by the ๐Ÿ‘‚, and dragged him into the room again, afterward closing the trap ๐Ÿšช ๐Ÿ†˜ that ๐Ÿ˜ฃ โž• accidents could happen.
Hour after hour passed away, and slowly Dorothy got over her fright; but she felt quite lonely, and the ๐Ÿ’จ shrieked ๐Ÿ†˜ loudly all about her that she nearly became deaf. At first she had wondered if she would be dashed to pieces when the ๐Ÿ  fell again; but as the hours passed and ๐Ÿˆš terrible happened, she stopped worrying and resolved to ๐Ÿš calmly and ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ the ๐Ÿ“ก would bring. At last she crawled over the swaying floor to her bed, and lay down upon it; and Toto followed and lay down beside her.
In spite of the swaying of the ๐Ÿ  and the wailing of the ๐Ÿ’จ, Dorothy ๐Ÿ”œ closed her ๐Ÿ‘€ and fell โšก asleep.
