Once Toto got too near the open trap door, and fell in; and at first the little girl thought she had lost him.
At last she crawled over the swaying floor to her bed, and lay down upon it; and Toto followed and lay down beside her.
So Dorothy and Billina and Toto walked up the street and the people seemed no longer to be at all afraid of them.
