The 1974 children’s book “Wheedle on the Needle” tells the story of a large, round, furry creature named Wheedle who lived in Washington state. Annoyed by the whistling of the workers who first settled in Seattle, the grumpy Wheedle moved to Mt. Rainier to escape the noise (although it eventually followed him there). To silence the noise, Wheedle gathered the clouds into a big bag, returned to Seattle, climbed the Space Needle, and threw them into the sky to make it rain.
Wheedle has since become a Seattle fixture, even acting as the Seattle SuperSonics NBA team’s mascot before moving to Oklahoma City.
