Chapter 14. The Winged Monkeys
Disclaimer: notes transcribed as is, no editing has been made so as to preserve my original feelings as I read the chapter.
The group is lost and on calling the mice for help, the Queen of the Mice helpfully inform Dorothy about the charmed Golden Cap that she is currently wearing. She uses her first wish from the Cap & asks the Winged Monkeys to help them find their way.
Of course, they can’t really refuse and so the entire party gets an airlift back to the Emerald City. During that time the King of the Winged Monkeys tells his tale.
His people’s enslavement to the whim of the Cap-wearer seems like a harsh punishment for playing a prank on the North Witch’s fiancé but even so, the Queen of the Mice did tell Dorothy that they are well known for their callous manner.
It seems that the Winged Monkeys may well make another appearance. Dorothy has two more wishes.
Even though she is back at the Emerald City, I have a feeling about the Great Oz (that has everything to do with the spoiler-fest of the movie).
Dorothy may need the Winged Monkeys assistance again, and probably will at some point free them. Even if it is unwittingly like her previous escapades.
