The Patchwork Girl of Oz is the story of Ojo's quest to find the exotic, and often dangerous, ingredients necessary to make a potion that will unpetrify his beloved Unk Nunkie. During his adventures he is present when the Patchwork Girl is brought to life by Dr. Pipt's wife. His interference in the process helps make Scraps, the Patchword Girl, into something far more interesting than the dull house servant that Mrs. Pipt had wanted. Instead of becoming a household servant Scraps accompanies Ojo on his many adventures. Along the way they meet the Woozy and Bungle the glass cat. But Even with Scraps help, can Ojo save his beloved Unk Nunkie?

In Tik-Tok of Oz Betsy Bobbin is shipwrecked in the Nonestic Ocean with her friend Hank the mule. The two drift to shore in the Rose Kingdom on a fragment of wreckage. Betsy meets the Shaggy Man and accompanies him to the Nome Kingdom, where Shaggy hopes to release his brother, a prisoner of the Nome King. The group experiences many fascinating and exciting adventures on their way to the Nome Kingdom. They meet Queen Ann Soforth of Oogaboo and her army, and the lovely Polychrome, who has lost her rainbow again; they rescue Tik-Tok from a well; and are dropped through a Hollow Tube to the other side of the world where they meet Quox, the dragon. Will they ever rescue the Shaggy Man's brother?

L Frank Baum considered The Scarecrow of Oz to be his best book. It opens with Trot and Cap'n Bill rowing along a shore of the Pacific Ocean, a mighty whirlpool engulfs them and sinks their boat. The old sailorman and the little girl are miraculously saved and regain consciousness to find themselves in a sea cavern. (To this day, Trot asserts she felt mermaid arms about her during those terrible moments under water.) They experience one perilous adventure after another until eventually they make their way to Jinxland and meet the Scarecrow who takes charge of things once Cap'n Bill is transformed into a tiny grasshopper with a wooden leg. Will the Captain remain a grasshopper or will Trot, the Scarecrow, and their friends be able to restore him to his former shape and life? Find out in the exciting conclusion of The Scarecrow of Oz.
