In this dazzling tale, L. Frank Baum proves once again his power to delight and enchant readers of all ages. Follow the adventures of a charming new band of characters as they explore the wondrous land of Oz and discover that you learn more by traveling than by staying at home.

Forced to venture out of the dark forest, Unc Nunkie and Ojo the Unlucky call on the Crooked Magician, who introduces them to his latest creation: a living girl made out of patchwork quilts and cotton stuffing. But when an accident leaves beloved Unc Nunkie a motionless statue, it is up to Ojo to save him. In his search for the magic ingredients that will restore his uncle to life, Ojo is joined by the Patchwork Girl and by the conceited Glass Cat, who boasts of her hard ruby heart, the resourceful Shaggy Man, and the lovable block-headed Woozy, whose tail hairs are just one of the things Ojo needs to rescue Une Nunkie.

As they travel to the Emerald City, home of the wise and powerful Ozma, they meet Dorothy, the kind and sensible girl from Kansas; the gallant Scarecrow; and, of course, Toto. But no one proves more loyal than the spirited Patchwork Girl, who, although she was brought to life as a servant, is determined to see the wide world for herself.

The Patchwork Girl of Oz has captivated readers for over eighty years. Now, in this stunning new edition--featuring all fifty-one of John R. Neill's original full-color plates as well as eighty black-and-white illustrations--a whole new generation can discover the beauty and wonder of Oz that have made this classic series an enduring favorite.

display_descriptionIn this exciting children's story from the Oz series, a young Munchkin ventures to the Emerald City with the help of a live patchwork doll. Ojo the Unlucky isn't sure how he got his nickname, but he finds it fitting after a visit to Dr. Pipt the Crooked Magician. There, he learns about Dr. Pipt's incredible Powder of Life, which has turned an old patchwork quilt into a living girl. But when Dr. Pipt's Liquid of Petrification accidentally turns Ojo's uncle into a statue, Ojo must seek out the magic ingredients that will bring Unc Nunkie back to life. On his journey to the Emerald City to find a six-leaved clover, Ojo is joined by an arrogant Glass Cat, a four-legged Woozy, the resourceful Shaggy Man, and the Patchwork Girl herself. Along the way, Ojo meets a thoughtful Scarecrow, a caring Tin Woodman, and a kind young lady from Kansas named Dorothy Gale. And while gathering the life-saving ingredients isn't easy, his adventures might just teach him that luck is what you make of it.
