Uncle Wiggily's Adventures : The Famous Bed Time Series
49 Classic Bedtime Stories for Children - Uncle Wiggily's Adventures by Howard R. Garis - The Famous Bed Time Series. Uncle Wiggily Longears is the main character of a series of children's stories by American author Howard R. Garis. He began writing the stories for the Newark News in 1910. Garis penned an Uncle Wiggily story every day (except Sundays) for more than 30 years, and published 79 books within the author's lifetime. According to his obituary in the Chicago Tribune, a walk in the woods in Verona, New Jersey was his inspiration. The books featured work by several illustrators, notably Lansing Campbell. Other illustrators of the series included George L. Carlson, Louis Wisa, Elmer Rache, Edward Bloomfield, Lang Campbell and Mary and Wallace Stover. Uncle Wiggily, an engaging elderly rabbit, is lame from rheumatism. Wherever he goes, he always relies on a red, white, and blue crutch-described as being "striped like a barber-pole," or, in later episodes, "his candy-striped walking cane," with spiral red and white striping like a peppermint candy stick.
