About This Item

Joliet: The P. F. Volland Company, 1918. Hardcover . Used - very good. 8vo. Although copyright date is 1918, the printing date is certainly between 1929 and 1934, as determined by 1929 being the latest date of books listed on final page and owner inscription dated 1934. Includes worn bookmark, 'Raggedy Ann's Magical Wishes.' Front board very slightly bowed. A very bright, clean copy with corners lightly bumped and frayed. Housed in the original box which is edgeworn and smudged; however, the front cover illustration is bright and unmarked.

Synopsis

Since Raggedy Ann first appeared in print in 1918, she has charmed millions of readers with her always warm and 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. All the original stories are here, as Raggedy Ann comes to Marcella's nursery and quickly becomes the leader of the dolls. After learning a lesson from a naughty raid on the pantry, Raggedy Ann's adventures show her striving to be good -- and succeeding. She and the other dolls rescue Fido, the family dog, from the dogcatcher. 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, teaches two new dolls to be tolerant, and shares the excitement of a baby brother for Marcella, among several other tales. 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. A brief biography of the author-artist by his grandson, Kim Gruelle, makes this edition especially valuable.
