When Scraps, the sassy Patchwork Girl, is brought to life by Dr. Pipt’s magic Powder of Life, the excitement begins. The young boy Ojo, accompanied by Scraps, Bungle the Glass Cat, and a peculiar creature called the Woozy, must quest through Oz to find the strange ingredients to brew a magic liquid that will release his Unk Nunkie from a spell which has turned him into a marble statue.

Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 – May 6, 1919) was an American author chiefly famous for his children’s books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels. He wrote 14 novels in the Oz series, plus 41 other novels, as well as many short stories, poems, and plays.

For over a century, readers of all ages have loved these stories, and many of the Oz characters and situations have become a part of popular culture.

Available in two-volume “high-rez” with images based on 1100 x 1500px, or single-volume “low-rez” based on 800 x 1100px.

Thanks for all of your hard work! I read all of Baum's original Oz books years ago and enjoyed the original illustrations. Seeing a new Oz epub release always puts a smile on my face.

Thank you, I hope you enjoy this new generation.

I must admit, I did not care for the illustrations in a couple of the previous books --- Neill was indulging in what I would call "Confetti and Spaghetti School of Cookery", so I could hardly make out the images due to multitudes of specks and spots and lines. These later books, he is moving back to simpler easy-to-comprehend line drawings.

Slowly but surely, I am making my way through Baum's sequence of Oz books.
