Wizard of what city was Goodwin the Great and Terrible?
The wizard of which city was Goodwin the Great and Terrible? The Wizard of the Emerald City, an interesting book and cartoon.
The Wizard Goodwin the Great and Terrible ruled in the Magic Land of Emerald City. It was to him that the girl Ellie with the puppy Totshka, the Tin Woodman, the straw Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion went for help. Alexander Volkov wrote about this in the fairy-tale book "The Wizard of the Emerald City" based on the work of LF Baum "The Wizard of Oz".
In fact, James Goodwin is not a wizard at all, he just worked in a circus and was accidentally thrown in a balloon into the Magic Land by a hurricane. At the end of the story, he returns home to Kansas, and the Scarecrow Wise becomes the ruler of the city.
James Goodwin, a fairytale hero from the Wonderful Land of Oz, was the Ruler of the Emerald City. Before appearing in the Magic Land, he was a circus performer and dreamer, but the hurricane took him to the Green Land, where the inhabitants of the country mistaken him for a wizard. From the Green Country, he begins to make the Emerald City. Due to the shortage of emeralds, he builds a city of glass and forces all residents of the country and guests to wear green glasses. With the arrival of Ellie and her team in Wonderland, James Goodwin decides to return to Kansas in his hot air balloon and continue his circus career. Instead of himself, he puts the Scarecrow in the chair of the Ruler. After completing his career, Goodwin opens a grocery store in Kansas.
This Goodwin was not that terrible and great.
And not even a wizard at all.
A hurricane was thrown into the Emerald City. Before that, he worked in a circus.
So he could not give what the Scarecrow, Lumberjack, Leo and Ellie and Toto asked of him.
But at that time they already had everything they wanted to get from the Wizard of the Emerald City.
