Hello H2K

Sorry it took so long...

1. Even the sky wore a green look.

Does it mean that sky looks greeen?

— Yes; and other things in the vicinity too.

2. Don't you know that water would be the end of me.

Does it mean that water is resposible fir the end of me?

— "Water would be the cause of my death." A fish made out of tissue paper might say this.

3. They have no word from him next day.

Does it mean that he does speak to them next day?

— They have no news from him next day.

4. So the wizard filled his head with a mixture of bran and a great many pins and needles.

What does it mean?

— "bran" is a collective noun that means the husks of cereal grains. "A great many" means "very many". The phrase presents a humorous and perhaps nonsensical image.

5. True courage is in facing these fears headlong in spite of being afraid.

What is the meaning of the sentence and specially "headlong"?

— True courage = dealing boldly with the cause of your fear. "Headlong" means moving quickly or impetuously or violently with your head in front of you. It probably isn't appropriate here, as "to face something" usually implies non-movement; whereas "headlong" implies movement.

6. Where in the word did you come from?

It should probably be "where in the world did you come from?"

Hello Mr.P

I am thankful of you for your thoughtful reply.

"where in the world did you come from?" Yes ,it was typo. But what does it mean?
Hello Hanuman

"Where in the world...?" is an idiomatic phrase. It's simply an intensified form of "Where...?"!
