" The last chapter is titled The Happy Ending. That pretty much says it all for me. " said.

"I read this book to my three-year-old daughter after she picked it out at the library, and she sat quietly through all 94 pages of it (in several sessions). I found the illustrations charming. The writing and story reminded me a lot of the Oz books, with wild imagination and little regard for trying to be "realistic"—this is the perfect story for young children. In the last chapter, everything is resolved, but there was a little too much memory loss and restoration going on for me. :) My three-year-old didn't mind, though." said.

"Read this as a child, and re-read it whenever I visit my father.

It's fairly late in the sequence of Raggedy Ann/Andy, and there are enough references back to earlier books that astute kids might find this one confusing. But I still like the general precept of kindness to others even though they might appear to be antagonistic/unpleasant to you, bravery in the face of what appears to be something fearful....and never taking things at face value. Giant who loves children so much that he's taken in all the kids from the neighboring kingdom, now run by The Evil General? Check. Creatures who bluff and bluster, but can be rendered friendly by a lapful of cream puffs, dill pickles, and dishes of chocolate ice cream? Check. Witches with loud cackles and large warty noses who prove to be lovely fairy princesses in disguise? Check.

And of course, there are the two imperturbable cottony protagonists.
" said.

" Is this the one that they tied a piece of ice in a string?I remember they had to figure out how to tie water and that was what they did. I always thought that was quite clever. " said.
