I went through a serious obsession with Raggedy Andy and his creator, Johnny Gruelle, between 1st and 2nd grade. I can’t tell you what I did yesterday or what I’m supposed to be doing now, but I have vivid memories of racing to the Gruelle section of the “local” library (mom was on the board of directors) to grab one of the tattered copies that I had already read numerous times alone and with my folks. The drawing was one of many my mom kept that I must have had all over the house, the ceramic was a joint effort between mom and I, and the book is a recent score in excellent shape for a few bucks. This favorite edition was published by Bobbs-Merrill in 1960. #books #literature #bibliophile #johnnygruelle #illustrators #illustrations #kidsbooks #kidsclassics #raggedyann #raggedyandy #bobbsmerrill #libraries

    Our generation still knew and appreciated Anne and Andy. Icons long lost

    I've always loved them. To me they are the subconscious base of Strawberry Shortcake.
