Here’s another great book from Beatrix Potter: The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin. Available in audio or electronic book format at All You Can Books Blog, this delightful tale is about mischievous and riddle-telling Squirrel Nutkin, his hardworking siblings and cousins, and a wise old owl. Of course, Potter made sure that this tale also includes a valuable lesson learned. Let’s suffice it to say that the story ends with Nutkin losing his tail because the wise old owl wanted to teach him a lesson!

Published in 1803, Potter was inspired by the gorgeous setting of the Lake District, where she spent her summer holidays. According to reports, The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin is based partially on a red squirrel colony she discovered during her holidays, from which she wove the tale. The story was a huge success for Beatrix Potter pretty much as soon as it was published, and we’re sure you’ll also enjoy the book. The beauty of Potter’s many tales is that they tend to appeal to both children and adults alike – making it great reading for people of any age.
