Forced to venture out of the dark forest, Unc Nunkie and Ojo the Unlucky call on the Corooken Magician, who introduces them to his latest creation: a living girl made out of patchwork quilts and cotton stuffing. But when an accident leaves beloved Unc Nunkie a motionless statue, it is up to Ojo to save him. In his search for the magic ingredient that will restore his uncle to life, Ojo is joined by the Patchwork Girl, the conceited Glass Cat, who boasts of her hard ruby heart, the resourceful Shaggy Man, and the lovable block-headed Woozy, whose tail hairs are just one of the thing Ojo needs to rescue Unc Nunkie.
