"Uncle Wiggily Longears is the main character of a
series of children's books by American author Howard Roger Garis,
seventy-nine of which were published in the author's lifetime. Garis began writing the stories for the Newark News in 1910.
Uncle Wiggily, an engaging elderly rabbit, is lame from rheumatism. Whenever he goes anywhere, he always relies on what Garis
describes as "his candy-striped walking cane" - this is a cane striped red and white like a peppermint candy cane.
The books are illustrated by August Lenox." Read More
