Deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest lives a quiet old creature named the Wheedle. When humans move into his forests, bringing their loud city noises, Wheedle flees to the rocky peaks of Mount Rainier, and then to the very tip-top of Seattle's Space Needle.

A national bestseller, the beloved Wheedle on the Needle had much of its Seattle-centric storyline stripped from later editions. This glorious 35th anniversary keepsake edition brings back the book's original charm, inviting a new generation of readers to delight in the Wheedle's adventures.

This was my favorite book as a child; now I'm 30 and I still remember that red light in the sky. I've already shared the 'history' of Wheedle to my nephews, now I need to show them the story in print. Happy reading !

Wheedle on the Needle is a special book that puts a premium on quietness. It also strangely is connected to Seattle and the red light on top of the space needle. There are also allusions to the cause of all the rain and gloominess. This book makes me wonder how many other children's books has a city and a giant orange creature as its plot line.

A great children's book about a grumpy Wheedle who learns to live with his noisy neighbors in Seattle. This was my favorite book when I was a lad.

While I can't say I loved this book as a child, since I was in my teens when it came out. I did love it from the time it came out and bought it for my little brothers since I loved it so much. I have over the years bought it for all my nieces and nephews including my baby niece this year. I must admit since I live in the greater Seattle Area this might have added to my enjoyment. Howver I believe that any child will love the Wheedle
