The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin

Author(s): Beatrix Potter

Childrens Classic Fiction

In fall, the squirrels go to Owl Island to gather ripe nuts for the winter. They are always careful to bring gifts for Mr. Brown, the old owl who lives there. One bad-mannered squirrel named Nutkin doesn't look for nuts; he bothers Mr. Brown with riddles instead. When Mr. Brown finally gives the naughty Nutkin an answer, it will be a surprise, and an end to the little squirrel's tale! Beatrix Potter wrote the first book of her Tales as an illustrated letter to a young friend. Published in 1902, The Tale of Peter Rabbit was followed by 22 others. These charming stories are best-sellers around the world and have captivated generations of children. As a child, Potter studied art and natural history. Although she grew up in London, she enjoyed spending family holidays in Scotland and England's Lake District, where she loved the animals and countryside. The original Peter Rabbit was a household pet.
