About Johnny Gruelle

See more books from this Author
Johnny Gruelle (1880-1938) was an extremely talented cartoonist, illustrator, and storyteller. He had already written and illustrated a book of original fairy tales before creating the first two Raggedy books, Raggedy Ann Stories and Raggedy Andy Stories. Raggedy Ann, heroine of the first, was the favorite doll of his daughter, Marcella, who died after a long illness at the age of thirteen. She was the inspiration that Johnny drew from to eventually create over forty Raggedy Ann and Andy books, all capturing his unique vision of childhood. Many of the stories, illustrations, and adventures in the Raggedy Ann storybooks were based on Marcella's childhood ad ventures. Raggedy Ann and Andy and the Camel with the Wrinkled Knees was one of Johnny's early adventure storybooks and has become one of his most popular.
