"Uncle Wiggily and The Peppermint" was written by Howard Garis. Garis originally created Uncle Wiggily for the Newark Evening News in 1910 and it became so popular that it was nationally syndicated on a daily basis. The comic strip evolved into a series of books illustrated by several different illustrators. This paper book was illustrated by George Carlson and is bright and colorful and wonderful to share and remember. This edition is published by Platt & Munk and is No. 3600B. It was copyrighted in 1939. Black and white or full color illustrations are on each page. On the back of the book is an illustration and a quick rhyming synopsis:
Poor Uncle Wiggily looks so sad. He can't get in, you see, But, He will fill the bottle up Ye, very easily. For peppermint grows in the woods. Its juice is extra stong. Its taste would scare the bear away. If one should come along.
This delightful illustrated childrens' book is in good condition. An owner's name has been written in pen on the front cover. The pages are very minimally yellowed. The binding is tight. The colors are bold and bright and will charm adult and child alike.
