An Enjoyable To Read Series

by Johnny Gruelle. If any of have read Raggedy Ann, Raggedy Andy, etc., some of you may guess from the title what this book is about.

Raggedy Ann
Raggedy Andy
Raggedy Ann and the Camel With Wrinkled Knees
Raggedy Ann's Wishing Pebble
There are other books. I have only listed some.

Marcella is the owner of the dolls. Whenever she leaves the room, or is on vacation, the dolls have all sorts of fun. They have a taffy-pull*, rescue Fido, (Marcella's dog,) Raggedy Ann gets washed, (quite an adventure,) and have lots of other fun.

I have read most of the
books in this series quite a few times. They're some of the BEST books written in my opinion.

*taffy-pull: I've never partaken in one, but it sounds like TONS of fun!

P.S. These make ABSOLUTELY GREAT read-alouds!!!
