The Patchwork Girl of Oz is the seventh book in L. Frank Baum's Oz book series and was published in 1913.
The Patchwork Girl of Oz was also one of the four Baum books that he turned into movies by the Oz Film Manufacturing Company in 1914 and 1915. Sadly, his business went belly-up, mostly due to bad business partners.
Anyone who knows me knows that I simply love silent films and this one is a particularly odd one, which makes me love it even more!
If you've got a spare 50 minutes, sit down and watch this very strange adaptation of The Patchwork Girl of Oz.
In addition, it is this very book that I have drawn upon for some of the elements of my wife and I's first book as co-authors which we are calling The Emerald Slippers of Oz.
