Based on historical accounts (and just in time for Andyis eighty-fifth birthday!) this picture book will acquaint young readers with how the worldis most beloved boy doll came to be. Long ago, Johnny Gruelle was a dedicated father who created a doll as a gift to his daughter Marcella.

Made from one of his mothers old dolls and scraps of fabric around the house, the doll became known to the world as Raggedy Ann. Johnny also had two sons, Worth and Dickie, who included Raggedy Ann in all their games. When they flew kites, Raggedy Ann was there- when they read books, she was there- and even when they played pirates, Raggedy Ann was along for the fun.

But the boys felt that Raggedy Ann was lonely and needed a brother. So Daddy (and Santa!) came to the rescue with the charming and rascally Raggedy Andy. As it turned out, Raggedy Ann, Raggedy Andy, and the countless books, songs, and toys featuring them were the perfect diversions for a public weary from World War I, and they continue to be a source of joy for young people, collectors, and fans worldwide. The Honest-to-Goodness Story of Raggedy Andy is Patty and Jonis second Raggedy collaboration.

Together, they also wrote and illustrated The Real-for-Sure Story of Raggedy Ann .
