Synopses & Reviews
Howard Garis (1873-1962) was a young reporter for the Newark Evening News
when he first started writing stories for children about a lovable rabbit named Uncle Wiggily. Calling them "bedtime stories" (apparently the first time the term was used), he created a widely syndicated series that eventually totaled hundreds of tales.
This volume ― the only inexpensive paperbound edition available ― includes eleven of the best stories from the series, relating the long-eared cottontail's adventures with the Lost Chipmunk, the Black Cricket, the Doll Doctor, the Lazy Duck, the Pinching Bug, and other appealing characters.
Printed in large, easy-to-read type and enhanced with twenty-seven new vignettes, these delightful stories will captivate today's young readers as much as they did youngsters in the early twentieth century.
Eleven delightful stories about the old gentleman rabbit and his adventures with the Lost Chipmunk, the Black Cricket, Mother Goose, the Pinching Bug, the Doll Doctor, the Lazy Duck, and other appealing characters. Captivating stories, abundantly illustrated, impart gentle lessons about friendship and kindness. 27 new illustrations.
