Welcome to *The Wonderful Wiki of Oz*
A Wonderful and Welcoming Encyclopedia of all things Oz that anyone can edit or contribute Oz-related information and Oz facts, so enjoy!
This wiki is dedicated to the task of collecting and displaying to the public information regarding the world surrounding the Land of Oz created by author L. Frank Baum in his original series of books, which was continued by other authors and explored further in print, on the stage, and on the silver screen with many canon continuation and adaptations.
"Over the Rainbow, and many, many miles East of nowhere, lies the Magical Land of Oz, a magnificent empire created in the mind of a man named L. Frank Baum, who wrote a marvelous book about it titled The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the first American Fairytale. And like wildfire in a wheatfield, the spellbinding tale of Oz spread from town, to city, to nation, and captured the hearts of people young and old from all over the entire world. Even a century after it was first told, Oz is still as entrancing and intriguing as it was over one hundred years ago in 1900. And unlike many stories told throughout time, Oz hasn't lost it's ability to cause people from generation from generation to fall under it's spell. There are so many endearing characters to meet and places to go, fantastical adventures to have and enchanted inhabitants to encounter. So, just follow the Yellow Brick Road, visit the Emerald City and click your heels in anticipation. The wonderful world of Oz awaits you!"

Poppies are dangerous flowers within the Land of Oz that cause people who sniff them to fall asleep. They are introduced in the first book as Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, and Toto are poisoned by their smell. In the book, the Scarecrow and Tin Woodsman are able to carry away Dorothy and Toto but not Lion until they get help from the Field Mice. In the 1939 film, Glinda casts a snow spell that ceases the flowers' effect on the travelers.
