Like the works of Thornton Burgess, Beatrix Potter, and Joel Chandler Harris, Howard R. Garris's Uncle Wiggly tales create a charming animal world of intricate detail. Well cared for by Nurse Jane Fuzzy-Wuzzy, Uncle Wiggly, the rabbit gentleman, is a friend to all small creatures. Given his kind and obliging nature, Uncle Wiggly helps a rich cat find an exciting life, helps escaped creatures return to the circus, and shares a picnic with humans, rain and all. The pace of life is slow; each adventure is straightforward and genuine. Jim Weiss narrates with an earnestness and compassion that celebrates Garris's animal world. A.R.
