    Here's my traditional year start with a Beatrix Potter booklet. Some Potter books are just very cute and this is one of them! It is the tale of naughty squirrel Nutkin. Every year, he and a group of squirrels go to an island in the middle of the lake, asking the owl 'Old Mr. Brown' wh...

    Yes, I just read this 100-year-old story for the first time today. And: 1. Twinkleberry is a good name for a squirrel. So is Nutkin, but I was unprepared for Twinkleberry. 2. Old Brown is a patient owl. Seriously, with an upstart like Nutkin being all impertinent on his doorstep....

    Staring at a bar of Swiss chocolate that I was kindly given earlier today, I had a moment of revelation: I knew, with unutterable certainty, what Squirrel Nutkin is called in French. And you see, I was right! (view spoiler)[ (Not will not only vouch for the truth of this story, s...

    In its day, this was a cautionary tale about the need for rambunctious kids to have good manners. Nutkin's behaviour was comic because in those days it would have been unthinkable for most middle-class kids to act like that in the presence of an older adult (Brown Owl is obviously an e...

    The Tale of Lumpen Comrade Chichikov, by Comrade Nikolai B. Potter Gogol All the Bednyaks from the village came to Kulak Brown's farm bearing a gift. They bore a large pot of okroshka for the Kulak, supplicated themselves and begged that he allow them to collect seeds from his field...

    Reading Beatrix Potter because I saw the movie about her and was delighted by her sensible delicacy and mixture of imagination and pragmatism. Maria Carmo, Lisbon 2 February 2015. ...

    Even though the pictures of all the little red squirrels were very adorable, I pretty much hated this one. It was all little riddles and rhymes and very little plot. Squirrel Nutkin learned this lesson in the end, but I felt like the journey to get to that lesson was odd, too long, and...

    I loved naughty Nutkin as a kid. As an adult, I loved the picture but some things bothered me. How exactly were the squirrels acquiring dead moles & mice? Were they hunting? And the idea Old Brown skinning Nutkin- not sure how a child of 5 would respond- would they be upset? Proba...

    a tale about a tail. confusing, a little. entertaining absolutly. ...

    I understand this is supposed to be about respecting your elders, but I feel like this squirrel has a mental disorder. ...

    Squirrel Nutkin is absolutely NUTS! I mean both the story and the character. Rodents making pagan offerings of other rodents, and a main character whom is intent on goading the owl, even to his own destruction. ...

    I had to read this again after Wendy Doniger called Squirrel Nutkin "a truly sinister theological character." ...

    I bought the original edition of this story, I have an interest in squirrels and I absolutely love the illustations from front to back! The story was short and sweet and about a mischievous squirrel called Nutkin and his friends visiting Owl Island to collect nuts and this is where Old...

    Most of his friends are busy gathering nuts but Squirrel Nutkin can't resist teasing Mr. Owl. Beautifully illustrated, cute story. ...

    I decided to do some rereads of Beatrix Potter. I loved them as a child, and still enjoy them as an adult. ...

    Love Ms. Potter's work... writing, illustrating, imagining and most importantly, sharing! ...

    read this in honour of a squirrel nutkin 50p megan kindly gave to me! ...

    I just love these short love-able classics! This is one of my favorites because I love Red Squirrels! ...

    Urgh. Reviewed, and then lost it when the page decided to play games! This seemed to have a bit more of a moral to it than the previous book. Before I got to the end of the story, I was thinking it was going to be 3 - 3.5 stars. There were things that sat weirdly with me, such...

    Have any of you read The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown? In that book, there are some puzzles and riddles that the main character has to solve. I was able to solve each and every one of the puzzles and riddles, which were laughably easy. I remember snorting with derision that any puzzle e...

    Revisiting Beatrix Potter is always a joy. The illustrations, which just seemed so colorful and lively as a kid, appear to an adult as the intricately detailed and accurate representations of English flora and fauna they are. It's so easy to identify the squirrels as Red Squirrels, and...

    As my local squirrel, Hoffa (he's a union representative for wildlife), wakes me each morning in his never ending acorn escapades, I always think of this book and the little sacks the squirrels carry to gather their harvest. This edition has wonderful drawings by Allen Atkinson who con...

    This cute little children's story was a lot of fun. I've always been a sucker for children's books about animals behaving like people. It's a good morality tale to boot. Impudent children get what's coming to them. : ) ...

    I downloaded this very short free Kindle book from the Gutenberg website because C.S. Lewis referred to it in his autobiography, _Surprised by Joy_. Unlike Lewis, the story did not make me nostalgic for autumn. ...

    What a funny little book. Full of nonsense poems and little plot, it's still endearing. The wonderful illustrations as well as the dry humor of the tale makes it a classic (perhaps not in the same range as Peter Rabbit, but none-the-less a classic Potter tale). Wonderful to read a-loud...

    Possibly my all-time childhood favorite...and the genesis of my three-year-old self's most bizarre knock-knock joke... ...

    A song and dance is no replacement for respectful hard work. Was hoping to read more about the delightfully named "Twinkleberry." ...

    Read this to our two year old yesterday for the first time. Lots of laughter and giggles during Nutkin's riddles and rhymes. ...

    I feel sorry for the creatures offered up to the owl, and there was no answer to the rhymes. A weird book. ...

    Here's my traditional year start with a Beatrix Potter booklet. Some Potter books are just very cute and this is one of them! It is the tale of naughty squirrel Nutkin. Every year, he and a group of squirrels go to an island in the middle of the lake, asking the owl 'Old Mr. Brown' wh...

    Yes, I just read this 100-year-old story for the first time today. And: 1. Twinkleberry is a good name for a squirrel. So is Nutkin, but I was unprepared for Twinkleberry. 2. Old Brown is a patient owl. Seriously, with an upstart like Nutkin being all impertinent on his doorstep....

    Staring at a bar of Swiss chocolate that I was kindly given earlier today, I had a moment of revelation: I knew, with unutterable certainty, what Squirrel Nutkin is called in French. And you see, I was right! (view spoiler)[ (Not will not only vouch for the truth of this story, s...

    In its day, this was a cautionary tale about the need for rambunctious kids to have good manners. Nutkin's behaviour was comic because in those days it would have been unthinkable for most middle-class kids to act like that in the presence of an older adult (Brown Owl is obviously an e...

    Reading Beatrix Potter because I saw the movie about her and was delighted by her sensible delicacy and mixture of imagination and pragmatism. Maria Carmo, Lisbon 2 February 2015. ...

    Even though the pictures of all the little red squirrels were very adorable, I pretty much hated this one. It was all little riddles and rhymes and very little plot. Squirrel Nutkin learned this lesson in the end, but I felt like the journey to get to that lesson was odd, too long, and...

    I loved naughty Nutkin as a kid. As an adult, I loved the picture but some things bothered me. How exactly were the squirrels acquiring dead moles & mice? Were they hunting? And the idea Old Brown skinning Nutkin- not sure how a child of 5 would respond- would they be upset? Proba...

    a tale about a tail. confusing, a little. entertaining absolutly. ...

    I understand this is supposed to be about respecting your elders, but I feel like this squirrel has a mental disorder. ...

    Squirrel Nutkin is absolutely NUTS! I mean both the story and the character. Rodents making pagan offerings of other rodents, and a main character whom is intent on goading the owl, even to his own destruction. ...

    I had to read this again after Wendy Doniger called Squirrel Nutkin "a truly sinister theological character." ...

    I bought the original edition of this story, I have an interest in squirrels and I absolutely love the illustations from front to back! The story was short and sweet and about a mischievous squirrel called Nutkin and his friends visiting Owl Island to collect nuts and this is where Old...

    Here's my traditional year start with a Beatrix Potter booklet. Some Potter books are just very cute and this is one of them! It is the tale of naughty squirrel Nutkin. Every year, he and a group of squirrels go to an island in the middle of the lake, asking the owl 'Old Mr. Brown' wh...

    Yes, I just read this 100-year-old story for the first time today. And: 1. Twinkleberry is a good name for a squirrel. So is Nutkin, but I was unprepared for Twinkleberry. 2. Old Brown is a patient owl. Seriously, with an upstart like Nutkin being all impertinent on his doorstep....

    In its day, this was a cautionary tale about the need for rambunctious kids to have good manners. Nutkin's behaviour was comic because in those days it would have been unthinkable for most middle-class kids to act like that in the presence of an older adult (Brown Owl is obviously an e...

    I just love these short love-able classics! This is one of my favorites because I love Red Squirrels! ...

    Urgh. Reviewed, and then lost it when the page decided to play games! This seemed to have a bit more of a moral to it than the previous book. Before I got to the end of the story, I was thinking it was going to be 3 - 3.5 stars. There were things that sat weirdly with me, such...

    Have any of you read The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown? In that book, there are some puzzles and riddles that the main character has to solve. I was able to solve each and every one of the puzzles and riddles, which were laughably easy. I remember snorting with derision that any puzzle e...

    Revisiting Beatrix Potter is always a joy. The illustrations, which just seemed so colorful and lively as a kid, appear to an adult as the intricately detailed and accurate representations of English flora and fauna they are. It's so easy to identify the squirrels as Red Squirrels, and...

    Here's my traditional year start with a Beatrix Potter booklet. Some Potter books are just very cute and this is one of them! It is the tale of naughty squirrel Nutkin. Every year, he and a group of squirrels go to an island in the middle of the lake, asking the owl 'Old Mr. Brown' wh...

    Yes, I just read this 100-year-old story for the first time today. And: 1. Twinkleberry is a good name for a squirrel. So is Nutkin, but I was unprepared for Twinkleberry. 2. Old Brown is a patient owl. Seriously, with an upstart like Nutkin being all impertinent on his doorstep....

    Staring at a bar of Swiss chocolate that I was kindly given earlier today, I had a moment of revelation: I knew, with unutterable certainty, what Squirrel Nutkin is called in French. And you see, I was right! (view spoiler)[ (Not will not only vouch for the truth of this story, s...

    In its day, this was a cautionary tale about the need for rambunctious kids to have good manners. Nutkin's behaviour was comic because in those days it would have been unthinkable for most middle-class kids to act like that in the presence of an older adult (Brown Owl is obviously an e...

    The Tale of Lumpen Comrade Chichikov, by Comrade Nikolai B. Potter Gogol All the Bednyaks from the village came to Kulak Brown's farm bearing a gift. They bore a large pot of okroshka for the Kulak, supplicated themselves and begged that he allow them to collect seeds from his field...

    Reading Beatrix Potter because I saw the movie about her and was delighted by her sensible delicacy and mixture of imagination and pragmatism. Maria Carmo, Lisbon 2 February 2015. ...

    Even though the pictures of all the little red squirrels were very adorable, I pretty much hated this one. It was all little riddles and rhymes and very little plot. Squirrel Nutkin learned this lesson in the end, but I felt like the journey to get to that lesson was odd, too long, and...

    I loved naughty Nutkin as a kid. As an adult, I loved the picture but some things bothered me. How exactly were the squirrels acquiring dead moles & mice? Were they hunting? And the idea Old Brown skinning Nutkin- not sure how a child of 5 would respond- would they be upset? Proba...

    a tale about a tail. confusing, a little. entertaining absolutly. ...

    I understand this is supposed to be about respecting your elders, but I feel like this squirrel has a mental disorder. ...

    Squirrel Nutkin is absolutely NUTS! I mean both the story and the character. Rodents making pagan offerings of other rodents, and a main character whom is intent on goading the owl, even to his own destruction. ...

    I had to read this again after Wendy Doniger called Squirrel Nutkin "a truly sinister theological character." ...

    I bought the original edition of this story, I have an interest in squirrels and I absolutely love the illustations from front to back! The story was short and sweet and about a mischievous squirrel called Nutkin and his friends visiting Owl Island to collect nuts and this is where Old...

    Most of his friends are busy gathering nuts but Squirrel Nutkin can't resist teasing Mr. Owl. Beautifully illustrated, cute story. ...

    I decided to do some rereads of Beatrix Potter. I loved them as a child, and still enjoy them as an adult. ...

    Love Ms. Potter's work... writing, illustrating, imagining and most importantly, sharing! ...

    read this in honour of a squirrel nutkin 50p megan kindly gave to me! ...
