Explore the wonder of Oz in this collection of books seven through nine in L. Frank Baum’s classic American fairy tale series.
The seventh, eighth, and ninth titles of the iconic Oz series, now in one collection!
In The Patchwork Girl of Oz, the Munchkins Unc Nunkie and Ojo the Unlucky call on the Crooked Magician, who introduces them to his latest creation: a living girl made out of patchwork quilts and cotton stuffing. But when an accident leaves beloved Unc Nunkie a motionless statue, it is up to Ojo to save him. Can the mighty Wizard of Oz help?
In Tik-Tok of Oz, Betsy Bobbin and her loyal mule, Hank, wash up on the shores of an unknown fairyland during a storm. There they meet the clockwork man Tik-Tok and find themselves trapped in a battle with the king of the Nomes.

"Oz, the Complete Collection, Volume 3: The Patchwork Girl of Oz; Tik-Tok of Oz; The Scarecrow of Oz" Reviews
Two of the three books were pretty good though Tik Tok Of Oz was pretty horrible of a book. The adventures were very fun but it seems they are more about bringing in his other books to Oz than making a real connection to the original Oz characters.
Scarecrow of Oz - 4 ⭐️
Another collection of 3 fun stories by L. Frank Baum. The Patchwork Girl of Oz introduces some new characters and tosses in some of the familiar ones for a cool story. From the Woozy, Glass Cat, Ojo, and of course the Patchwork Girl, all the characters are great here. Tik-Tok of Oz, along with The Emerald City of Oz, & The Marvelous Land of Oz, are my 3 favorite of the 9 books so far. Queen Ann, Tik-Tok, and Roquat all make returns, with Betsy Bobbins, and Polychrome, and meeting up with The Shaggy Man for a great little adventure story. Roquat being one of my favorite Oz characters gets an interesting transformation, and I like the close of his story in this one; would be interesting to see what comes of Kaliko. The Scarecrow of Oz, again throwing some new characters into the mix with some usual ones, makes for very interesting adventuring. Cap'n Bill and Trot were new to me, and great fun. I love the Ork. So many interesting characters are met along the way. For those that may have read through the series in order thus far there are some surprise character appearances that seem like spoilers to reveal, so I'll leave it for the fun of reading the adventure yourself. Still, I'd say, I'm a fan of the whole 9 books of this series. There are times it feels a bit repetitive, but the stories are always fun, and I always like the sense of wonder and adventure throughout, being not so much about the results so much as the ride to get there.
The Patchwork Girl of Oz: 2.5 stars.
I wish I could get into this series, but I just can't. I can see the appeal and how it would be great for kids, but unfortunately that's not me. In the Patchwork Girl of Oz we journey throughout the land of Oz in search for item to complete a potion, only to fail and find out the Wizard could've fixed the problem straight away. At the beginning, I was quite into this story, but towards the end my interest dropped. It's such as shame 'cause I really want to like this series.
Tik-Tok of Oz: 2.7 stars.
I felt this story was an improvement of the previous one, as I enjoyed it a bit more. I think the new and different characters are what helped move the story along for me. Still only 2.7 stars though because, though I liked it I progressed slowly through.
The Scarecrow of Oz: 2.9 stars.
I know I could just make it 3 stars, but though I liked this story better than the Patchwork Girl of Oz, it was a bit hard to get into. But after the first few chapters, I flew through it. I can still only give it 2.9 stars though because it didn't really do anything for me.
Overall, this book was okay. There were times that I liked it but mostly it seemed a chore to get through.
07. THE PATCHWORK GIRL OF OZ
New characters equal fresh ideas as Baum returns to the popular series. This time there is hardly any mention of the characters we have come to know, love and, at times, be iritated by. Instead we have Ojo and Scraps on a journey to break a evil spell.
08. TIK-TOK OF OZ
This is still a good children's story, but you can see that Baum is starting to get tired and lazy. Characters are both new and old, and on the whole things are interesting and imaginative, but there are points that don't gel with the previous books.
09. THE SCARECROW OF OZ
This is one of the better Oz books which actually has a plot that isn't just about getting from A to B. Here some more new characters - Cap'n Bill and Trot - find themselves caught up in a fight for the throne of the land of Mo and, with the help of the Scarecrow, try to sort things out the best they can.
THE PATCHWORK GIRL OF OZ
This was my first read-through of The Patchwork Girl of Oz. I really enjoyed it. I liked the new characters though Scraps was a bit annoying with her constant singing. It was nice to see the return of familiar faces. Dorothy is not as much of a brat this time.
TIK-TOK OF OZ
This was my read-through of Tik-Tok of Oz. I thought it was very good. I liked to read about the Nome king again and his futile attempts to conquer other nations. He’s sort of a laughable buffoon. I liked the Queen of Ooogaboo. Her belief she could conquer the whole of Oz made her as amusing as the Nome King.
THE SCARECROW OF OZ
This was my first read-through of The Scarecrow of Oz. I really enjoyed this tale. Baum introduces some interesting new characters. I liked getting to revisit some old ones including Button-Bright, the Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow.
