Johnny Gruelle was an American artists & children’s book author. He is the creator of the Raggedy Ann & Andy books. Over the years, he published 40 stories about these two rag dolls & their playmates.

He had the Raggedy Ann doll patent done on September 7, 1915 and in 1918 the first book was published. This year Raggedy Ann is celebrating her 100th year anniversary (1915-2015).
