Johnny Gruelle, known less by his name and more often as the "Raggedy Ann man," worked all his life as an artist. His whimsical drawings and astute observations inspired a number of other artists and cartoonists, including Theodore Giesel (Dr. Seuss) and Mary Engelbright.
The publications of Johnny Gruelle have been exhaustively researched and extensively cataloged in this bibliography. The foremost expert on Gruelle and his creations, Patricia Hall has compiled a beautiful volume bound to delight die-hard Raggedy collectors, Gruelle bibliophiles, and casual readers alike. With hundreds of illustrations from Gruelle's publications, this book is more than just a bibliography, it is an annotated photographic history of one of this country's greatest contributors to children's literature.
