A hardcover reprint with pictorial boards and many color plates. Since Raggedy Ann first appeared in print in 1918, she has charmed millions of readers with her always optimistic outlook and calm approach to difficulties. Now she returns to delight a new generation in this carefully produced reissue, which restores the book to its original appearance. Johnny Gruelle's delicate illustrations are the perfect companions to the well-loved stories in this American classic, the only edition authorized by the Gruelle family.
All the original stories are here, as Raggedy Ann comes to Marcella's nursery and quickly becomes the leader of the dolls. When, in one adventure, Raggedy Ann has to have her stuffing replaced, she gets her famous "I LOVE YOU" candy heart. Raggedy Ann also goes up in a kite, rescues Fido the dog, teaches two new dolls to be tolerant, and shares the excitement of a baby brother for Marcella, among several other tales.
