The magical practices and potions of the Land of Oz is the thread running through The Patchwork Girl. The story begins with a visit by a young Munchkin lad, Ojo the Unlucky, who with his Unc Nunkie visit a reclusive magician, Dr. Pipt. The old sorcerer has just completed the six year task of brewing a spoonful of the Powder of Life, and is preparing to administer it to a life-sized rag doll made by his wife Margolotte. The intent is to create a servant to help his wife in her chores, but unbeknownst to the magician, Ojo doctors the doll's brains. In the confusion that erupts as the Powder of Life performs its miracle, Margolotte and Unc Nunkie are turned into marble statues and the Patchwork Girl is brought to life quite unfit to ever be a servant. To restore life to the two hapless victims, Ojo undertakes a quest to find the ingredients for an antidote to the enchantment, accompanied by the Patchwork Girl and the Glass Cat, another creation of Dr. Pipt. A series of adventures ensue, as they brave new challenges and meet new and amazing peoples and lands in their hunt for the magical ingredients.

The Tin Woodman of Oz : a faithful story of the astonishing adventure undertaken by the Tin Woodman, assisted by Woot the Wanderer, the Scarecrow of Oz, and Polychrome, the Rainbow's daughter by L. Frank Baum( Book )

3 editions published between 1918 and 1965 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Tin Woodman of Oz is a story of a heroic effort to regain a lost love. The adventure has its beginnings when the woodman explains to a young Munchkin boy, Woot how he came to be made of tin. It is a story of an ill-fated love between two Munchkins, Nick Chopper and Nimmie Amee, that so enraged the Wicked Witch of the East she caused the woodman to have accidents with his ax. After each accident the lost meat and bone parts were replaced with tin parts, until finally Nick was all tin. Nimmie Amee loved him just as much even though he was tin, but unfortunately he no longer had a heart so he could not return her love. After all these years have gone by, his sense of obligation and responsibility to Nimmie Amee is aroused by Woot; so together with the Scarecrow, he sets out to find and marry the Munchkin maiden. But their adventure seems ill-fated when they fall under the control of a giant wizardess. Ozma and Dorothy witness their plight through the Magic Picture and come to their aid. Together again, they set out once more to find Nimmie Amee, only to discover to their amazement, there is yet another tinman -- the Tin Soldier. He too was a Munchkin engaged to marry Nimmie Amee, but suffered the same fate as the woodchopper at the hands of the Wicked Witch of the East. Joining their party, the Tin Soldier also seeks to redeem his lost love. When at last they find Nimmie Amee, there is yet another surprise. This engaging tale by Baum must be regarded as one of the most inventive romantic stories yet told. The twist of fate revealed in the climax makes for a most enjoining experience
