Summary

UNCLE WIGGILY’S SQUIRT GUN is the 25th Uncle Wiggily picture book and contains 3 stories with 29 colour illustrations. The stories in this volume are UNCLE WIGGILY’S SQUIRT GUN or JACK FROST ICICLE MAKER, UNCLE WIGGILY’S QUEER UMBRELLAS and UNCLE WIGGILY’S LEMONADE STAND.
As with everything Uncle Wiggily gets involved in, each story is an 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.

UNCLE WIGGILY is 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.
================
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 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.

    Three children, forced to remain at school during the holidays, go in search of adventure. What they find is a magic castle straight out of a fairy tale, complete with an enchanted princess at the center of a maze. Or is it? The castle turns out to be just a country estate, and the princess is only the housekeeper's niece, playing at dressing up. But the magic ring she shows them proves -- to her surprise and horror -- to really be magic. Soon they are caught in an adventure where statues come alive, lost lovers are reunited, and wishes can be granted -- but always for a price. (Summary by Peter Eastman)
