Little Orphan Annie is a daily American comic strip created by Harold Gray and syndicated by the Tribune Media Services. The strip took its name from the 1885 poem "Little Orphant Annie" by James Whitcomb Riley, and made its debut on August 5, 1924, in the New York Daily News. The plot follows the wide-ranging adventures of Annie, her dog Sandy and her benefactor Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks.

Harold Gray is an author born on January 20 1984 to Estella Mary and Ira Lincoln Gray. Harold's original plan for Little Orphan Annie was Little Orphan Otto the title was altered by Joseph Medill Patterson. Gray's first wife, Doris C. Platt, died in late 1925. He married Winifred Frost in 1929, and the couple moved to Greens Farms, Connecticut, spending winters in La Jolla, California.

I first read Little Orphan Annie in the Sunday funnies as a kid, between 1962 and 1968 when Harold Gray died. I have purchased several reprints over the years, but none were complete or comprehensive, and nearly all of them (even hardback reprints produced by Harold Gray himself in the 1930's) ignored the very earliest Annie cartoons. The only reprinting of the origin of Annie I ever saw was a 1970's Dover Books title "Little Orphan Annie and Little Orphan Annie in Cosmic City". And if you refer to the last strips in the reprint "Arf - The Life and Hard Times of Little Orphan Annie" - Annie is clearly about 12 years old in the strips from 1945, and spends most of the war years in overalls.

Supposedly Martin Charnin read this book and decided to make a Broadway musical based on Little Orphan Annie. The rest is entertainment history and the story continues.

I recently saw a performance of "Little Orphan Annie." I got to wondering about the comic strip. This book has selections from the comic strip from 1935 to 1945. The book is a brick; it is about five pounds. The pages are not numbered, but there are easily 500 pages here. You can read six strips at a time, three on the left, and three on the right. The date for each strip is right above the strip.

It is easy to see why the strip was so popular. This was a hard book to put down. The stories are fun and entertaining. You do have to ignore many unlikely events.

The book shows an interesting contrast between how there have been some great changes over the last seventy years, and how many things are still the same.

For example in one of the threads there is a discussion of how Warbucks might be developing atomic energy. There is another story of Nazis taking over a castle in the United States. Often Annie is in trouble and it is hard to get to a phone. From incidents like this you can see some of the changes over the last seventy years. Nowadays with so many people having cell phones, Annie would have been able to avoid lots of problems with a quick phone call.

Then on the flip side so many of the problems Annie dealt with are motivated by common themes through all of literature, greed, jealousy, malice, and so on. Annie often has to endure some terrible situation, but always in the end things work out.

The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because this book has selections from the ten year period, and huge chunks are missing. Most of the time it isn't that noticeable, but ever once in awhile a story would start to wrap up, and then the book would jump to strips published a couple months later without a complete conclusion. I would rather have had a book with the complete selection of five years, than to have a partial selection over a ten year period.

All in all this is a fun book. If you are looking for some hours of entertainment, and you are interested in knowing more about Little Orphan Annie, this is a good book to read.

This massive, oversize volume collects ten years worth of classic "Little Orphan Annie" strips, from July 1, 1935 to Christmas Day, 1945... It is some of the most compelling comicstrip reading you'll ever encounter, drawing you in from start to finish with its forceful documentation of the times, from the Great Depression to the end of World War Two. Creator Harold Gray had fairly weird politics, a robust mix of rugged capitalist conservatism, stern optimism and socially-oriented populism, with fiesty, forthright Annie as his eyes on the world. The artwork is a delight, with its bold use of black-and-white, and elegant framing... Mostly, though, there's Annie, always an appealing character, even amid the slow-moving and sometimes wooden dramas... Trust me: if you pick this book up, you'll be very, very happy!

Harold Gray had his own philosophy, which is reflected in the Little Orphan Annie strip. This collects the daily (as opposed to Sunday) comic strips through much of World War II. Many of the things depicted then are still with us: Gray had a good finger on the pulse of the human psyche. With all of that, Gray has created a bunch of interesting, often comoplex, characters, many motivated to do their best by a subteen orphan girl.
