Written and Illustrated by Johnny Gruelle
Raggedy Ann has been entertaining and charming young readers ever since the first book created by Johnny Gruelle in 1918 chonicled the adventures of the mischievous rag doll and her delightful toy friends. Gruelle's inspiration was a real doll -- a doll made for his mother by his grandmother and then much loved by his daugther Marcella. Raggedy Ann Stories, Gruelle's first collection of tales, was soon followed by books that introduced Raggedy Andy and the fairland called the Deep, Deep Woods.
Johnny Gruelle was a gifted cartoonist who drew comic strips for the newspapers, and the Raggedy Ann books feature some of the most colorful and whimsical art ever to illustrate children's books. In this edition of The Raggedy Ann Stories, which contains the best original tales and artwork, you'll meet the rag doll's toy friends, as well as Fido the dog and Marcella, the little girl in whose house there is a special room where Raggedy Ann and all the other dolls live. Often, by the end of the story, after an exciting adventure or, perhaps, a wonderful journey, Raggedy Ann and her friends have learned a small but valuable lesson of life.
From the days of her discovery by the real Marcella, the little rag doll with red-yarn hair has inpired timeless tales and colorful pictures and has stirred the imaginations of millions of young readers all over the world.
