    I am definitely seeing a bit of a pattern with the Oz stories, but it isn't really taking the joy I am getting out of reading the books. I still am enjoying reading them and will more than likely do an entire re-read at some point later down the road. Although I do have one question. Does it seem that Dorothy and Ozma are kidnappers?

    Like the other books, this book was really great and I loved how it didn't just stick to the original story. There are other characters that aid Dorothy and her friends in their adventures.

In a weird accident involving Dr. Pipt, a crooked magician; Dr. Pipt’s wife and Ojo’s Uncle have become petrified. Ojo and Scraps, a patchwork girl who has come to life because of a pair of red leather shoes, take off to find the items to cure his Uncle and the Dr.’s wife. They need to gather 3 feathers from a Woozy’s tail, the left wing of a yellow butterfly, a 6 leaf clover, a drop of oil from a man and water from a dark well. As the two travel to get the needed items, they meet the Shaggy Man who helps them on their journey. Baum does like to reference events of the time period. The dark water is a reference to radium (which at the time was considered safe and beneficial) and the Horners’ home in the book was made of radium because “no one can ever be sick because of radium”. There is also a mention of a phonograph that came to life, which was named Victor Columbia Edison. I am continually delighted with this series especially the references to events in the time period in which the books were written. Tik-Tok of Oz 1914 Although you would think this book would center on Tik-Tok, the mechanical man of Oz, he is only it for a short time. The main story revolves around Shaggy Man, who is on a quest to find his brother who has been missing and was taken by the Nome King aka Ruggedo and aka the Metal Monarch. I find it interesting that some of Baum’s characters have multiple names (and some have none like Shaggy Man’s brother in this book) because it does make it a little hard to keep track of the characters. Though I love his creative characters, some are only in the book for a sentence or two. But I digress, there are also a couple of side stories, one of which involves the Rose Kingdom, where only male roses rule so when Shaggy and Betsy Bobbin picked the Rose Princess out of the ground, she was banished and followed them on their mission to find Shaggy’s brother. This book also has some interesting references like his other books. Edison is referred to as the “first mortal to discover electricity”, Ozma watched over her citizens through a radium frame, and Ozma and Shaggy talked through wireless telephones that could be put in their pockets! Did Baum conceive the idea of the cell phone??? The Scarecrow of Oz 1915 This story relates the tale of the one legged Captain Bill and Trot, a young girl with mystic symbols on her head that cannot be seen. They had been walking when from out of no-where a whirlpool takes them and they end up on a sandy beach where they meet Ork from Orkland, who has a tail that is like a propeller. So begins the 9th adventure of the Oz series. Along the way they meet the beautiful princess, Gloria; a lowly gardener, Pon; the Bumpy Man; Pessim, who is a pessimist and the Scarecrow and have a lot of adventures and of a course, a happy ending.

    Oz, the Complete Collection, Volume 3 is a bind up of the next three books in Oz series (The Patchwork Girl of Oz, Tik-Tok of Oz, and The Scarecrow of Oz) written by L.

Frank Baum and centered on ironically enough Ojo the Unlucky, Betsy Bobbin, and the team of Cap'n Bill and Trot respectively and their adventures in the Land of Oz. The Patchwork Girl of Oz (★★★★☆) has Ojo the Unlucky and Unc Nunkie call on the Crooked Magician, who introduces them to his latest creation: a living girl made out of patchwork quilts and cotton stuffing. However, when an accident leaves Unc Nunkie in a motionless statute, it is up to Ojo to save him. However, Ojo has the moniker of the Unlucky for a rather good reason. Tik-Tok of Oz (★★★★☆) has Betsy Bobbin and her loyal mule, Hank, wash up on the shores of an unknown fairyland during a storm. They meet Shaggy Man who is looking for his missing brother and eventually find the clockwork man Tik-Tok and Polychrome. They find themselves trapped in a battle with the Nome King and Queen Ann Soforth of Oogaboo. The Scarecrow of Oz (★★★★☆) has Cap'n Bill and Trot journey to Oz and with the help of the Scarecrow, they overthrow the cruel King Krewl of Jinxland, who has been busy gathering an army for an invasion of Oz. Oz, the Complete Collection, Volume 3 is written rather well. Baum has broadened his wonderful world of magic and awe in the Land of Oz and neighbors, which includes many characters and lands from Baum's non-Oz books particularly in The Scarecrow of Oz. Oddly, the titles of the books are rather misleading as the titular characters are the central protagonist of their respective books. In The Patchwork Girl of Oz the main focus in on Ojo the Unlucky and his quest to save Unc Nunkie from being a motionless statue. Likewise, in Tik-Tok of Oz, the main focus is on the Shaggy Man who is looking for his missing brother who disappeared in a cave and suspects that the Nome King has him. Finally, The Scarecrow of Oz focus mainly on the team of Cap'n Bill and Trot and the Scarecrow only shows up in the end to save the day. All in all, Oz, the Complete Collection, Volume 3 is written rather well and is a wonderful continuation of what would hopefully be a wonderful series, which I plan to continue in the very near future.

Grouping these three stories together is a bit unfortunate because of their similarities. Individually, the stories still have the same fun, bright magic and wholesome simplicity that captivated me in the previous titles. But taken together, they are a repetitive and somewhat disappointing bunch. As with volume two, new characters take the lead in this collection. The cast in The Patchwork Girl of Oz is the most well rounded, having strong and distinct personalities with backstories that are developed early on to motivate them. On the other hand, the companions in Tik-Tok of Oz and The Scarecrow of Oz are less varied. Betsy and Trot, the little heroines, are so similar to each other and Dorothy that they’re interchangeable. Both are dropped into their stories with little background*, have a companion who looks over them, and bear a spirit of curiosity and bravery. They’re dear girls, but Oz needs only one Dorothy. The core cast of Oz make brief appearances in all three tales, and they’re not as vibrant as before. Here they’re plot devices, used to push the new characters forward, get into trouble, or save the day. Glinda and Ozma in particular serve only as safety nets in Oz. It is these safety nets that are the real issue with this volume. After the characters face many dangers and obstacles in all three stories, easy answers to their problems are revealed at the last minute, and all is well. The endings are anticlimactic not only because these resolutions are sudden and tidy, but because they were available all along. With magic-wand resolutions at the ready, Baum proves that there are no real stakes left in Oz. Each tale is just an adventure for adventure’s sake. While still fun and enjoyable reads, these stories have less substance than the previous books in the collection, and travelling along the yellow brick road is becoming less meaningful and a tad monotonous. *I’m learning now that Trot was pulled from Baum’s less successful novel The Sea Fairies, which was first intended to be unrelated to Oz. This explains Baum’s letter preceding The Scarecrow of Oz, which otherwise had no context.

Though I really enjoyed The Patchwork Girl of Oz and The Scarecrow of Oz (except for the fact that they kept saying that a gardener was not a good match for a princess, and Button-Bright seems to have a different character than he did in The Road to Oz), Tik-Tok of Oz was terrible. Not because of the way it was written, but because it was completely inconsistent. The first thing that bothers me is that the Nome King was supposed to be good now.

Not because of the way it was written, but because it was completely inconsistent. The first thing that bothers me is that the Nome King was supposed to be good now. Because when he drank from the fountain in the Emerald City, he had forgotten all his evil and all the things that had happened 'til then. Also, he had no magic powers without the magic belt, but in this story, he remembered everything, now all of the sudden the eggs actually cause them to die, which in The Emerald City of Oz it was proven that it didn't do anything to them when the Scarecrow threw a bunch of eggs at the Nomes. Besides that, there's the fact that Polychrome appears again, and even though she had already met Shaggy Man in The Road to Oz, in this story, is as if they had never met before. Those things are a bit annoying, so this story kinda didn't make a whole lot of sense in the narrative of all these stories put together. Also, if I remember correctly, Kalico was destroyed by the Nome King in The Emerald City of Oz, and Guph had taken his place as the confidant to the King of Nomes. So, all in all, this for me was the weakest of the ones I've read so far. On to volume 4.

    Oz Volume 3 comprises books 7 to 9 - The Patchwork Girl of Oz, Tik-Tok of Oz, and The Scarecrow of Oz. Once again I completely fell in love with these stories. The writing and world building is truly magical. There are even more new and interesting characters added and each one is unforgettable. As soon as I finished this book I picked up the next volume. I just wanted the adventure to keep on going.

    I'm not sure if I can write another review for these books, considering that they are all fairly similar and any critique I have is also going to be similar to previous books. Sugary-sweet with the typical journey through Oz and a happy ever after wrapped in a bow, there's only so much a girl can take!

    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.

    If it were judged by my enjoyment as I read it - 3.5*. However it must be judged for what it is: short stories for children. If I were reading them as a child, or to a child, then they are fantastic as children's books go. If it were judged by my enjoyment as I read it - 3.5*.

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.

    I really enjoyed the first story, up until they reached the Emerald City. The second story was very enjoyable, and it would have been my favorite if it hadn't so many inconsistencies with things that were mentioned earlier. It also seemed very familiar in some parts, such as the way Betsy got to Oz. The third story was okay, but I don't like how they changed Button-Bright's character so much. If he hadn't already been to Oz before, I would never have guessed that it was the same Button-Bright. O I really enjoyed the first story, up until they reached the Emerald City.

One inconsistency that really bothered me was that the Shaggy Man didn't seem to know Polychrome anymore. Another was that at one point Glinda was said to live north of Emerald City, and apparently there is also no more Good Witch of the North. The Glass Cat was one of my favorite new characters, but she was left behind at the Emerald City and then her personality was changed completely. I also like how there is finally a dragon. I still think that the characters are accomplishing everything too easily, especially in the first story but less so in the other two. And last but definitely not least:they blocked off Oz from the rest of the world but somehow two stories in a row, characters from outside of Oz have come to live there now. Also, I finally got my answer for why Toto didn't talk.

Das Quest hat Spaß gemacht, war aber auch ziemlich leicht zu lösen und am Ende ratzfatz vorbei. Tik-Tok of Oz ★★☆☆☆ Diese Geschichte fand ich eher unspektakulär, was wahrscheinlich an der Zusammenstellung der Gefährten lag, v.a. Shaggy Man kann ich einfach nichts abgewinnen (und dann auch noch mit seinem Love Magnet, der bewirkt, dass jeder ihn toll findet, urgh) und ich wünschte, es wäre mehr um Titelfigur Tik-Tok gegangen, den mag ich nämlich viel lieber. Insgesamt scheint sich das Oz-Universum jetzt langsam zu erschöpfen... ich hoffe, das ändert sich in Zukunft auch wieder. The Scarecrow of Oz ★★★☆☆ Dieses Abenteuer fand ich wieder besser, weil es viele Elemente beinhaltet, die mich ansprechen, so was wie die unterirdische Welt vom Anfang, das Land of Mo mit seinem Popcornschnee und Limonaderegen, das Herz aus Eis und die Höhle hinterm Wasserfall am Ende. Die Lösung des Konflikts ist wieder hochgradig konstruiert, aber da erwarte ich von den Büchern auch nicht viel mehr.

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.

To be honest, it's nice to just read some easy conflict-resolution right now while everything is feeling very unsolvable. The Scarecrow of Oz Rating; 3.75 stars Alike to Tik-Tok of Oz, the title misleads you into thinking the Scarecrow will be around in this tale, whereas he only appears in the last quarter or so - if even that - to provide a final resolution and rescue for the true protagonists of the story.

    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.

Me entretuvo, me gustó, sobre todo los primeros dos, pero no me volvió loco.

    In the first story Ojo and his uncle Nunkie are getting lonely in their cottage home, where no one else lives near. They head up the mountain to visit the crooked magician before going the the rest of the land of the Munchkins. In the crooked man's cottage, Nunkie and the crooked magician's wife turn into statues accidentally, because a patchwork girl they brought to life startled them. Because of that, Scraps, Ojo, and Bungle headed out to find ingedients for the spell to turn them back.

    Another enjoyable piece of the "Oz" story set. I'm realizing that as I continue to read these books, I equally enjoy all of them, but my recall is less than stellar. The stories, are fun, simple children's stories, yet utterly forgettable. I will continue reading, but it's unlikely I'll re-read. Maybe just the first one.

    Stories that kept me 6 year old entertained. Often we would sit down to read, "I don't want to read now." But by the time we had read 2 chapters, "No, keep going."
