Dogeared Page: The Patchwork Girl of Oz

Monday, August 17, 2015

"Patchwork Girl has come to life;
No one's sweetheart, no one's wife;
Lacking sense and loving fun,
She'll be snubbed by everyone."

"Quite a compliment! Quite a compliment, I declare," exclaimed the donkey, turning to look at Scraps. "You are certainly a wonder, my dear, and I fancy you'd make a splendid pincushion. If you belonged to me, I'd wear smoked glasses when I looked at you."

"Why?" asked the Patchwork Girl.

"Because you are so gay and gaudy."

"It is my beauty that dazzles you," she asserted.

- The Patchwork Girl of Oz by L. Frank Baum


  1. I've not read any of L. Frank Baum's works, but I love this :)

    1. Well, you know I'd always recommend them ;)

      The Wizard of Oz is the first, but the best is probably Ozma of Oz... and this one is so fun too :D

  2. This was one of my favorites in the series. <3

    1. And obviously mine too- second only to Ozma of Oz! :D

      I've never asked, but what is your favorite Oz book?

  3. I like her self-confidence
