The Cowardly Lion
Dorothy and her friends were walking through the forest when they heard a terrible roar . The next moment , a great Lion ran onto the road . Dorothy and her friends were very frightened , but little Toto ran ahead and barked at the huge beast .
When the Lion saw the little dog , he opened up his mounth as if to bite him . Dorothy became so angry at this that she came forward and slapped the Lion on the nose .
"Don't you dare bite Toto !" she shouted .
"You ought to be ashamed of yourself , a big Lion like you , trying to bite a little dog !"
"I didn't bite him ," said the Lion , as he rubbed his nose with his big paw .
"No , but you tried to," Dorothy answered . "You are nothing but a coward !"
The Lion felt very ashamed . He told Dorothy and her friends that although he was the King of the Beasts , he was actually a coward . He was afraid of almost everything and everybody .
The scarecrow scratched his straw head . Then he said , "Maybe Oz could give you courage."
"If only I had courage , then I could truly be King of the Beasts." said the Lion .
So Dorothy , the Scarecrow and the Tinman invited the Lion to join them on their journey to the Emerald City . The Lion agreed , and the friends continued to follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the home of the Great Oz .
