Howard Roger Garis, (25 April 1873–6 November 1962), a native of Binghamton, New York, was an American author, most famous for his children's book series Uncle Wiggily and the Bobbsey Twins.

Although famous under his own name for the Uncle Wiggily books, which starred Uncle Wiggily Longears, an elderly bunny gentleman, Garis was also an extremely prolific ghostwriter, writing for the Stratemeyer Syndicate. As Victor Appleton, he wrote about the enterprising Tom Swift; as Laura Lee Hope, he is generally credited with writing volumes 4–28 and 41 of the Bobbsey Twins; and as Clarence Young, the Motor Boys series; as Lester Chadwick, the Great Marvel series and the stories of Baseball Joe; as Marion Davidson, several of the Camp Fire Girls books, among several others.

Having written many hundreds of children's books, Garis was the one of the most influential writers of his generation in the genre, introducing children to series with accessible characters and engaging plots. Many of his books, especially the Uncle Wiggily books, are still commonly read today, and are often readily available to be read over the internet.

His wife, Lilian Garis, as well as their children, were also writers for Stratemeyer. Prior to Stratemeyer, they both worked as reporters for the Newark Evening News. He died in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1962.
