From the creator and artist of Raggedy Ann and Andy, this delicately designed book was first published in 1917 by Voland Company of Chicago and has been restored to its original luster in this edition. Decorating each page are whimsical, jewel-like, full-color illustrations — among the most memorable examples of the "Sunbonnet" period of children's book illustrations from 1905-1920.

Johnny Gruelle was an extremely talented cartoonist, illustrator, and storyteller. He had already written and illustrated a book of original fairy tales before creating the Raggedy Ann and Andy stories. Raggedy Ann, heroine of the first book, was a favorite doll of his daughter, Marcella, who died after a long illness at the age of thirteen. Johnny Gruelle eventually created over forty Raggedy Ann and Andy books, all capturing his unique version of childhood.
