This is a Tale about a tail—a tail that belonged to a little red squirrel, and his name was Nutkin. Are you ready for a tall tale of tails? Squirrel Nutkin is a naughty little squirrel with absolutely no manners at all. When all the other little squirrels go over to Owl Island to collect nuts on Old Brown Owl’s land, Squirrel Nutkin thinks making fun of Mr Owl is great fun, but he might not think so for long. One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Benjamin Bunny. Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin, published originally in 1903, is the second in her series of charming stories.
