It all starts when the Raggedys decide to help a little girl named Marggy find her lost Daddy. With the help of Raggedy Ann's magical wishing pebble and Raggedy Andy's magical wishing stick, they set off with Marggy and her Mama to look for him. Along the way they make lots of new friends, including a playful Paper Dragon. But the naughty Mr. Doodle is never far behind -- first he wants Marggy to chop wood for him, and then he wants the Dragon all for himself! Will the Raggedys ever teach him to mend his ways?

About the Author Johnny Gruelle (1880-1938) was an extremely talented cartoonist, illustrator, and storyteller. He had already written and illustrated a book of original fairy tales before creating the first two Raggedy books, Raggedy Ann Stories and Raggedy Andy Stories. Raggedy Ann, heroine of the first, was the favorite doll of his daughter, Marcella, who died at the age of thirteen after a long illness. It was from Marcella that Johnny drew the inspiration to eventually create more than forty Raggedy Ann and Andy books, all capturing his unique vision of childhood. Many of the stories, illustrations, and adventures in the Raggedy Ann storybooks were based on Marcella's childhood adventures. The Paper Dragon: A Raggedy Ann Adventure was one of Johnny's early adventure storybooks and has become one of his most beloved.
