More About Johnny Gruelle
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 es. Raggedy Ann, heroine of the first book, was the 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 vision of childhood. Overwork and copyright disputes led to his untimely death in 1938. The Gruelle family -- Johnny's widow, Myrtle, and sons Worth and Richard -- soon created the Johnny Gruelle Co., which carries on his work. Today Worth and his own son, Kim, run the Last Great Co.(r) in Cashiers, North Carolina, and still have a hand in overseeing Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, books, and related products.
Johnny Gruelle was born in 1880 and died in 1938.

Wonderful story has captured Rebecca's heart Jul 31, 2000
I surprized my daughter with this book two weeks ago and now we read it almost everyday. She brings up the character's names throughout the day and has grown very attached to her Raggedy Ann doll. I love the illustrations as much, if not more, than she does. I've already purchased two more "My First Raggedy Ann" books for her upcoming birthday. The story of a wishing pebble and especially the character Minky fasinate her.
