Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Faithfully re-created with Gruelle's full-color illustrations, restored endpapers and reset text, the 1924 adventure Raggedy Ann and Andy and the Camel with the Wrinkled Knees will likely win over a new generation and warm the hearts of dedicated fans. ( Oct.)
Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-First published in 1924, the full-length story is still in print, but this version features large- and small-scale pop-ups. Textually, many of the talkier, precious passages have been excised, but the notably episodic plot is left intact. When the French doll Babette is snatched, Raggedy Ann and Andy give up thinking "nice, kindly thoughts," and take off in pursuit. Having gathered up a worn toy camel and other helpers, taken a side trip into "Loonie Land," and effected several rescues, the button-eyed band battle a pirate crew that turns out to be a group of girls in disguise, who had stolen Babette because they just wanted a nice doll. The illustrations are taken or adapted from the originals; on each of the six spreads, a large central tableau springs up, flanked by narrow, folded-over leaves of text with smaller 3-D effects. With no strings, slides, or pull tabs, the format lends itself to static display-but despite a superficial resemblance to Robert Sabuda's pop-up reinterpretations of classic tales, it's still a period piece, more a gift item for collectors than a necessary addition to library collections.-John Peters, New York Public Library

Format: Hardcover
"One day Raggedy Ann and Andy were walking in the deep, deep woods when they met their friend, the Camel with the wrinkled knees..." is not a quote from this book despite its appearance at the top of this page.

No, this book is far better written than that and is a great bit of foundation to lay for children who will one day, sooner than their parents think, be reading real literature. Furthermore, Moerbeek's pop-up interpretations of the original pictures are stunning little masterpieces, sure to delight for years to come.

True, it doesn't offer the knock-your-socks-off prose of The Pop Up Mickey Mouse (see), being sweet and nostalgic rather than sharp and scrappy. But it is still quite a good read with its engaging characters and wry humor. And though most of the jokes will admittedly be lost on the little ones, they do keep it fun for the adult doing the actual reading.

The original text appears to have been edited a bit - probably for brevity's sake - but the story does seem to be fairly well intact (though the ultimate explanation of how the mischief-maker flew away is now missing and must be inferred from the pictures).

Despite the editing, reading this book aloud will take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes and kids jaded by too much TV may not have the patience to sit through it. However, my own daughter asks for it frequently, and seems to think it is time well spent. I must say I agree with her completely.

My kids, ages three and five, absolutely love the book and listen to the whole thing beginning to end with no problem. They love the story and the pictures both.

The story is very sweet; Raggedy Ann and Andy set off to rescue a doll and also end up rescuing a little boy, all with the help of a good fairy, of course.

The pop-ups are delicate enough that I wouldn't leave the book lying around the house in case my one year old might find it. But an older child can be taught to open and close the pages with care.

Your child must have this book! It has the most beautiuful illustrations and stunning pop-ups. I have not even finished reading the story...the illustations alone have captivated me! The pictures posted on this site are from a different eddition, and are not even comparable.

This is one of the best pop-ups in my collection. Very detailed, and fun, pop-ups, and the art work is very much in keeping with the original Raggedy Ann books. A must for young and old collectors.

THIS BOOK WAS INCREDIBLE! THE COMPLEXITY OF THE POP UPS WAS AMAZING. THE GIRLS AGES 4 AND 6 LOVED IT. WE ARE KEEPING IT AWAY FROM THE 1 YEAR OLD. I WOULD RECCOMEND IT FOR ALL CHILDREN'S LIBRARIES.

Format: Hardcover
It's hard to peg the exact age range for Johnny Gruelle's Raggedy Ann readers: they require good reading skills or parental assistance but will appeal to a wide age range. Raggedy Ann And Andy And The Camel With The Wrinkled Knees will reach ages 5 and up with its story of a kidnapped French doll and Raggedy and Andy's rescue. Includes the traditional Gruelle illustrations and is suitable for gift-giving.

I would give this book all 5 stars except that I was a little mislead by the info. I was looking for the original hard cover book. The one I had as a kid. I am not sure if it is still in print though. That being said, I actually was pleasantly surprised with this hard cover pop-up book. I don't think they left anything out and is the whole story. My boys REALLY enjoyed the pop-up pages. It is a very creative way to tell a story and keeps the attention of my 2.5 yr old. The story is wonderful told and very imaginative. I am looking forward to buying many more Raggedy Ann & Andy books!

My granddaughter and I have enjoyed this book. She has been very careful with the pop-ups.
