The Oz books were among my childhood bookish obsessions. Such a magical, exciting universe. ( )
  Tara_Calaby | Jun 22, 2020 |
After 'Ozma of Oz' L. Frank Baum decided to telegraph it in. Big time. The books became a parade of nonsensical events with little of any importance happening to the characters other than walking through curious places, with no sense of wonder or danger, and when a real threat or problem emerges, such as in 'The Emerald City of Oz', book 6 and the first one since 'Ozma' to show a bit of life it gets solved lickity-split with boring magic.

You read that correctly. Baum makes magic boring.

Still, I push on, and 'The Patchwork Girl of Oz' features none other than a young Munchkin boy with a genuine problem and the need to go on a specific journey to get specific items to solve that problem. It's incredible how this book has the bare minimum of plot necessities! My standards must have become just that low, because it was relief to read an Oz book that wasn't awful. Until the end.

I'll let you connect the dots and guess what happens at the end of this installment, or let you experience it for yourself. I must add that it is really strange how Baum seems to hate music. One of the ancillary characters is a walking, talking Victrola and it is essentially threatened with hot death until it leaves our merry band of adventurers alone. There was a similar character in one of the previous books that literally lived and breathed music and the characters shat all over him, too. What gives with the hate Baum? What gives?

'The Patchwork Girl' gives me hope for Oz, but I'm still waiting on a follow up to the first three.

The Patchwork Girl of Oz🍒🍒🍒🍒
Land of Oz # 7
By Baum
1913

This book introduces us to Ojo, The Unlucky, a munchkin boy, who sets out on a quest to save his Uncle, Unc Nunkie from starvation, and begins by visiting old friend Dr. Pipt. Dr. Pipt demonstrated his 'Powder of Life' which animates any object it touches with magic words. He invented this powder for his wife, Margolette, to bring a patchwork doll to life to be her slave. However, another of Dr. Pipts inventions, the Liquid of Petrifacation, has spilled on his wife and him turning them to marble. The only way to save his uncle is to find an antidote for the Liquid of Petrification. He needs to find 5 specific ingredients for the antidote.

Ojos searches through Oz, for these 5 ingredients: 1. 3 hairs from the tip of a Woozy tail. 2. A gill ( quarter pint) of water from a dark well. 3. A drop of oil from a live human body. 4. A 6 leaf clover. 5. The left wing of a yellow butterfly
Ojo has collected all but the left wing because Yellow butterfly's only live in the Country of Winkie, where the Tin Man is emperor and he will not allow any living thing to die, even to save another. So they return to Emerald City and enlist the help of the Wizard of Oz. The wizard grants his wish and then renamed him Ojo The Lucky.

An interesting note: Baum wrote an additional chapter, titled 'The Garden of Meats'. It deals with a race of vegetable people, called Mangaboos. These vegetable people grew
"meat people" for food, the plants main feature were heads of human children. Baum was asked to not include the chapter by his editors, and it has been deleted and never found, except in reference.

I love this series....the wacky characters and plots. This is probably one of the best in the series so far...... ( )

Ojo and the Patchwork girl travel to save Ojo's Uncle. I liked the Patchwork Girl and the Scarecrow's reaction to her.
Their adventures were enjoyable.
But the ending made Ojo's hard work rather pointless. ( )

I had fond memories of this book, which I remembered as being my favorite of Baum's original fourteen Oz novels, and so when the Shanower/Young Marvel Oz comics ended one shy of it, I went on to it anyway. This is probably Baum's best plotted Oz novel since Marvelous Land, and best plotted journey-focused one since Wonderful Wizard itself, or maybe ever. Baum invents a new protagonist for the first time since Marvelous Land, and it does wonders: Ojo is a person in trouble in a way we haven't seen in these books in a long time, and it does well to create empathy for him, and thus energy for the story. Ojo's journeys across Oz are all motivated by attempting to cure his uncle of being a statue, and it makes things matter in a way they didn't for Dorothy in Road and Emerald City.

Plus, I've always loved Scraps the Patchwork Girl, and she delighted no less on this reread than any other. While Ojo is somber with responsibility beyond his years, Scraps is one of Baum's most childish characters, and that's what makes her fun-- everything is incredibly dramatic for her, as she pouts petulantly and bounds for joy in equal measure. Plus you get Oz's first real romance with her and the Scarecrow! Too bad Skottie Young never got to draw her (or the Woozy, or the Glass Cat, or the living phonograph) as I'm sure he would have done brilliantly, but you can't really go wrong with John R. Neill in any case. My 1990 Dover edition is in black and white, but is otherwise a pretty close facsimile of the original 1913 Reilly & Britton edition of the novel.
