Baum had intended to stop writing about the land of Oz after The Emerald City of Oz, but public outcry was so great that he continued his series. This intriguing story, about an orphan boy's quest across Oz to find the ingredients to a potion that will liberate his uncle from some misguided magic, reacquaints readers with their Oz friends (including the Scarecrow, Dorothy, Ozma, the Shaggy Man), and introduces some new friends: most notably Scraps, the Patchwork Girl. The pleasures, and dangers, of Oz and its unusual inhabitants, are well-represented as the adventure unfolds. John Neil's illustrations charmingly help to bring the story to life. The Patchwork Girl of Oz is a story to return to regularly.
