I loved reading my Raggedy Ann books when I was a child (showing my age here), and Orphan Annie has been made into dozens of books since its original 1885 debut, and into 8 movies from 1918!
But do you know where they came from?
I was surprised by the answer just as much as when I learned that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was written by the same author as James Bond!
Check out this link to Occulta Thesauri (Don't worry - it's nothing to do with the Occult) and see how these wonderful little red heads came to be:

There's so many funny, clever, inspiring, thoughtful, things out there about books, reading and writing - I thought I'd have somewhere to save and share the best ones....
