Patchwork Girl of Oz (version 2)

Book cover
By: (1856-1919)

Yes, this is another wonderful OZ book with all the old familiar characters and some new delightful ones. The Patchwork Girl, a free spirit if ever there was one, is brought to life in this story and then sets out into the wonderful world of OZ to help her friend Ojo find the ingredients for a magic potion to save his Uncle. The five things they need are strange and the places and people they meet along their journey are sometimes dangerous and sometimes funny but the Patchwork Girl always finds humor and fun in all of them. They are accompanied by the Glass Cat who is stuck up and arrogant because of her good looks and 'pink brains'. Another fun book well written by Baum and worth listening to by fans of OZ from 7 to 107.

Affectionately Dedicated to my young friend Sumner Hamilton Britton of Chicago


Through the kindness of Dorothy Gale of Kansas, afterward Princess Dorothy of Oz, an humble writer in the United States of America was once appointed Royal Historian of Oz, with the privilege of writing the chronicle of that wonderful fairyland. But after making six books about the adventures of those interesting but queer people who live in the Land of Oz, the Historian learned with sorrow that by an edict of the Supreme Ruler, Ozma of Oz, her country would thereafter be rendered invisible to all who lived outside its borders and that all communication with Oz would, in the future, be cut off.

The children who had learned to look for the books about Oz and who loved the stories about the gay and happy people inhabiting that favored country, were as sorry as their Historian that there would be no more books of Oz stories. They wrote many letters asking if the Historian did not know of some adventures to write about that had happened before the Land of Oz was shut out from all the rest of the world...

chapter 14 and 17 are not clear at all

Subject: Cute Story, Unbearable Readers
The woman that reads chapters 14-17 speaks in such a high pitched voice with so little inflection that it was impossible to listen to those chapters. I had to skip them. Unfortunately one of the following readers who read several chapters is one of the worst readers I've ever heard and is frustrating to listen to. She ends every sentence in a high tone that doesn't match what she's saying so she sounds like a robot or a middle school drama student who hasn't quite figured out how to talk naturally while acting. These two readers pretty much ruined the book for me. I don't mind several readers and all of the others did a fantastic job. I know these are volunteers and I don't expect superb reading, but reading that you can actually listen to would be nice.

Love these books but the French woman who is reading chapters 14, 15, 16 is IMPOSSIBLE to understand! And there should only be 1 narrator per book!
