Read this excerpt from The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, and then answer the question that follows. When Dorothy was left alone she began to feel hungry. So she went to the cupboard and cut herself some bread, which she spread with butter. She gave some to Toto, and taking a pail from the shelf she carried it down to the little brook and filled it with clear, sparkling water. Toto ran over to the trees and began to bark at the birds sitting there. Dorothy went to get him, and saw such delicious fruit hanging from the branches that she gathered some of it, finding it just what she wanted to help out her breakfast. Then she went back to the house, and having helped herself and Toto to a good drink of the cool, clear water, she set about making ready for the journey to the City of Emeralds.

The point of view used in the excerpt is the Limited Omniscient. Limited omniscient or the third person point of view happens when a narrator of high knowledge focuses on a single character to discuss rather than the general. The choice of character to be focused is not weighted by importance in the story but what the narrator needs to discuss.

The point of view that is used in the excerpt is third person point of view. The only thing you should remember to distinguish this form of storytelling is that author uses pronouns like ‘he/she/it’ a lot. So the things are usually described as if they are observed by the author. In this case, it is omniscient third point of view as you can see in this excerpt that author also knows the feelings and inner thoughts of characters.
