Summary: Ojo and Uncle Nunkie journey to Oz, stopping en route at the home of Dr. Pipt, a magician, and Dame Margolotte, his wife. While they are there, Dr. Pipt animates a rag doll, The Patchwork Girl, but during the transformation, the Liquid of Petrification is spilled and Nunkie, Margolotte, and Dr. Pipt's daughter's fiancĂ© Danx are turned to stone. The antidote requires a six-leafed clover, three hairs from a Woozy's tail and gill water from the Dark Well. The Patchwork Girl, Jesseva, the Munchkins and Ojo search for the needed ingredients and encounter many adventures. In the end, Nunkie, Margolotte, and Danx are restored to life and reunited with their loved ones.
