Raggedy Ann and Andy and the Camel with the Wrinkled Knees, by Johnny Gruelle (1880 - 1938)
Raggedy Ann, you remember, always thought lovely kindly thoughts because there was a little candy heart with the words "I love you" printed on it sewed, up in her nice cotton stuffed body. So of course she is the pleasantest sort of a rag dolly to become acquainted with or to meet again if you are already acquainted. This is the third book in which Raggedy Ann's exciting adventures are told, and Johnny Gruelle, her creator has long ago made her a classic in the child's world. Her brother Raggedy Andy is almost as famous.

In this tale the two of them set out to rescue the French doll from kidnappers. They are joined by the camel with wrinkled knees and a tired old horse. After that there certainly are doings - with witches and pirates, a fairy princess, the King of the Loonies, and everything. The child's library will be greatly enriched by this rollicking tale of lovable Raggedy Ann and her friends. (Summary from Social Progress 1924)

Wow! I have a hard cover edition of this that was originally my mother's. One of my favorite children's stories when I was a little girl! May I please claim Chapter 2? :)

2 is yours! Thanks, Jo!

I loved these books growing up. Our library had a bunch of them, and I would check them out all the time! :-)

I actually bought a copy of this one last year when it became PD, with the intention of scanning it eventually. I never got around to it, and was very excited when I searched one more time the other day, and found that someone had uploaded it to archive.
