-- Raggedy Ann is a character created by American writer Johnny Gruelle (1880–1938) appearing in a series of books he wrote and illustrated for young children. Raggedy Ann is a rag doll with red yarn for hair and a triangle nose. Johnny Gruelle received US Patent D47789 for his Raggedy Ann doll on September 7, 1915. The character was created in 1915 as a doll and was introduced to the public in the 1918 book Raggedy Ann Stories. When a doll was marketed with the book, the concept had great success. A sequel, Raggedy Andy Stories (1920), introduced the character of her brother, Raggedy Andy.

Through many generations, Raggedy Ann and Andy and their stories have been shared between parents and children and grandparents and grandchildren. This new collection combines those stories of adventure, friendship, and devotion in one volume begging to be read aloud!
