Overview

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.
