Patty's and Joni's Real-for-Sure Story of Raggedy Ann told all about where Johnny Gruelle's most famous girl rag doll came from. Now, just in time for his 85th Anniversary, you can share in the enchanting story of Ann's rascalish brother, Raggedy Andy, and how he came to be in 1920 - a creation inspired in great part by Gruelle's own two real-life sons, Worth and Richard.

Gruelle biographer Patricia Hall based her storyline for The Honest-to-Goodness Story of Raggedy Andy on her extensive research on Gruelle, then geared her text especially for young children. Artist and illustrator Joni Gruelle Wannamaker used family photographs and heirlooms as inspirations, to make this tribute to her grandfather's most famous creation true-to-life and historically accurate.
