The magical practices and potions of the Land of Oz is the thread running through The Patchwork Girl. The story begins with a visit by a young Munchkin lad, Ojo the Unlucky, who with his Unc Nunkie visit a reclusive magician, Dr. Pipt. The old sorcerer has just completed the six year task of brewing a spoonful of the Powder of Life, and is preparing to administer it to a life-sized rag doll made by his wife Margolotte. The intent is to create a servant to help his wife in her chores, but unbeknownst to the magician, Ojo doctors the doll's brains.

This is the illustrated edition including all the beautiful drawings by John R. Neill. This is a tale of life beneath the sea, of mermaids and sea serpents and other strange inhabitants of the ocean depths. A little girl named Trot and Cap'n Bill, an old sailor, are invited by several mermaids to come and visit their under-water home. Baum wrote this story in the hope of interesting his readers in something other than Oz; in the preface he writes: 'I hope my readers who have so long followed Dorothy's adventures in the Land of Oz will be interested in Trot's equally strange experiences.' Of course, he did not succeed in distracting his fans from Oz, yet the book was eagerly read; the result of this attempt was that he was forced to introduce Trot and Cap'n Bill into the later Oz stories
