« My dress is blue and white checked, » said Dorothy, smoothing out the wrinkles in it.
« It is kind of you to wear that, » said Boq. « Blue is the color of the Munchkins, and white is the witch color. So we know you are a friendly witch. »
Dorothy did not know what to say to this, for all the people seemed to think her a witch, and she knew very well she was only an ordinary little girl who had come by the chance of a cyclone into a strange land.
When she had tired watching the dancing, Boq led her into the house, where he gave her a room with a pretty bed in it. The sheets were made of blue cloth, and Dorothy slept soundly in them till morning, with Toto curled up on the blue rug beside her.
