The Patchwork Girl of Oz Book Review

The Patchwork Girl of Oz
by L. Frank Baum
I listened to The Patchwork Girl of Oz as an audio book. The story was very creative with many odd and unique characters. Although named for the patchwork girl, it is really about a munchkin boy who must go on a quest to find items for a magic potion to restore his uncle who was accidentally turned to marble. The Patchwork Girl goes along to help since she inadvertantly caused the uncle's accident. She is funny and says the weirdest things. It was enjoyable yet it had a very "pat" ending. The munchkin boy's "hero moment" falls short to me.
Rating: 4/5
