UNCLE WIGGILY goes SWIMMING is the 18th Uncle Wiggily picture book by Howard Garis and contains 3 action-packed children’s stories with 29 colourful illustrations. The extra 2 stories in this volume are UNCLE WIGGILY DISTRIBUTES THANKSGIVING CAKES and THE BUNNY RABBIT GENTLEMAN MAKES A KITE. As with everything Uncle Wiggily gets involved in, each story is an engaging adventure in itself.
Each story is short enough to be read to 3 to 5 year olds at bed time with bright, colourful images to keep children engaged throughout the story with a picture per page.
UNCLE WIGGILY is an engaging elderly rabbit and 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.
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. He then penned an Uncle Wiggily story every day (except Sundays) for more than 52 years, and published 79 books in his lifetime. According to his obituary in the Chicago Tribune, “a walk in the woods in Verona, New Jersey was his inspiration.”
