Image: Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Read-Aloud Treasury, by Johnny Gruelle (Author). Publisher: Little Simon (April 5, 2011)Raggedy Ann's Birthday
-- Raggedy Ann is a character created by American writer Johnny Gruelle (1880–1938) appearing in a series of books he wrote and illustrated for young children. Raggedy Ann is a rag doll with red yarn for hair and a triangle nose. Johnny Gruelle received US Patent D47789 for his Raggedy Ann doll on September 7, 1915. The character was created in 1915 as a doll, and was introduced to the public in the 1918 book Raggedy Ann Stories. When a doll was marketed with the book, the concept had great success. A sequel, Raggedy Andy Stories (1920), introduced the character of her brother, Raggedy Andy.
