Overview

Uncle Wiggily Longears is the central character in a series of nearly 18,000 children's stories, all written by Howard R. Garis, beginning in 1910. The stories began as a serial in the Newark News, with a new story appearing six days a week for thirty-seven years. The elderly rabbit gentleman relies on a red, white, and blue, barber-shop pole, walking stick due to his rheumatism. He lives with a muskrat house-keeper named Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy and frequently gets into adventures with his other animal friends. The character also spawned picture books, comic books, toys, board games and many other collectibles. Unfortunately, most of the books have been out of print for many years. Starry Night Publishing has opted to begin reprinting some of the Uncle Wiggily stories, to share them with future generations. This is the second book in the series, complete with all thirty-one original stories.

Howard R. Garis was born on April 25, 1873 in Binghamton, New York. He became one of the most prolific American authors of all time, perhaps being best known for authoring more than 18,000 Uncle Wiggily stories. Garis also wrote many other series, some under pseudonyms. He wrote the Tom Swift series under the name Victor Appleton, The Bobbsey Twins under the name Laura Lee Hope, the Motor Boys series as Clarence Young, the Baseball Joe series as Lester Chadwick, and the Camp Fire Girls series as Marion Davidson. He also wrote the Teddy Series, the Happy Home series, the Rocket Rider series, the Buddy series, the Curlytops series, the Bed Time series and the Circus Animal series. There were also numerous other one-off books. Garis wrote a new Uncle Wiggily story six days a week for the Newark News from 1910 until 1947 when he retired from the newspaper. However, he didn't stop writing and publishing his stories in book form. There were a total of 79 volumes of Uncle Wiggily stories, plus numerous other collections and single works. His wife, Lilian Garis was also a prolific writer. Between the two of them, and their children, the family authored more than 1,000 books. Howard R. Garis died on November 6, 1962 in Amherst, Massachusetts.
