My daughter who is all grown up and beautiful and a very 21st century urban woman has a remedy for being scared. She thinks about Uncle Wiggily. Its not that Uncle Wiggily is particularly strong – he’s not a superhero at all and suffers from rheumatism. He has fierce enemies – Skeezicks, the Pipsisewah, and assorted wolves, bears and alligators that he fends off with his umbrella or candy striped cane. But his life is full of adventures, and he meets all danger with kindness, ingenuity and wisdom. He has many furry woodland friends.
