Publisher's Summary

A patchwork doll comes to life, and Dorothy, the Tin Woodsman, and a host of new characters have enchanting adventures in the land of Oz. After a doll made out of a patchwork quilt is brought to life by a magician, she must find a way to break a spell that has turned two victims into motionless statues. A boy, the Patchwork Girl, and Bungle the Glass Cat go on a mission to find the ingredients for a charm that will transform the people back to life.

Familiar Oz characters and delightful new creatures join in the whimsical adventures that take place in the magical land of Oz. The Munchkin boy, Ojo, and all the Oz Characters, including a few new ones like the Patchwork Girl and the Glass Cat, join in the search for the magic Powder of Life. Ojo's beloved Unk Nunkie has accidentally been changed into a marble statue and Ojo needs certain things for the potion that will restore Unc Nunkie to life. Looking for the ingredients for the Powder, the travelers, including Princess Dorothy and Toto (of Wizard of Oz fame), The Tin Woodman, Jack Pumpkinhead, The Scarecrow, The Hungry Tiger and the Cowardly Lion search far and wide to help Ojo. Unexpected trials force the group back to Princess Ozma of Oz and the Wizard of Oz who finally get things sorted out.

Critic Reviews

"Alcazar Audio Works provides a delightfully directed full-cast reading of Baum's seventh novel set in Oz. A poor Munchkin boy named Ojo teams up with Ozma, Dorothy, the Wizard, a quilted patchwork girl named Scraps, and the rest of the wondrous characters to save Ojo's uncle from a wicked wizard's spell. The uncredited narrator reads with a beautiful English accent as a team of actors plays the colorful characters. Without using any sound effects, the cast brings the characters and Baum's story to life. One character, a lazy man of Quadling country, is given a surfer-dude accent, and Baum's words are updated to amusing but incongruous effect. Listeners of all ages will enjoy this whimsical fantasy."

Excellent story

What did you love best about The Patchwork Girl of Oz?

I loved everything about it all the characters had so much feeling and made the story come alive.

The wizard of oz collection

Have you listened to any of David Thorn and Full Supporting Cast ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No never but it's very good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Scrapes tired to help Ojo by covering up his crime so that her friend could still help his Uncle.
