    My curiosity was sparked by another review bemoaning this tale s cruelty and its disparaging message to children I can see where that reviewer is coming from After all, in the end poor Squirrel Nutkin s tail is broken in two, not to mention his spirit Yet one can t help but wonder about the continuing popularity of a book first published in 1903 There must be some redeeming value to this short tale I think your enjoyment of the story depends on how you view Squirrel Nutkin Is he a frisky little guy or deliberately taunting the owl Is he attention seeking and self absorbed or just impertinent and immature I see Squirrel Nutkin as a frisky fellow who really doesn t know any better He s sort of the class clown of the group, and fun and play are his personality, and really all he s ever known as it is ingrained in him I felt bad that none of his cousins tried to warn him of the error of his ways He had to learn his lesson the hard way, but I guess that mirrors real life You don t always get a warning.Thus, there we have the redeeming value Respect, diligence, and hard work are good qualities to exhibit while fun and play should be reserved for the appropriate time and place I see children enjoying this tale of a naughty squirrel The illustrations are charming and the moral message will certainly be received It s only as adults that we see this tale as tormenting than cautionary.

    My kid s grandma bought us a 12 book set of the original Beatrix Potter books I ll be reviewing them at random and out of order.This one has a real meanness to it A lot of the Beatrix Potter books have some cruelty but maybe this is the worst in the set we have.There are lovely illustrations of the squirrels crossing the water on little rafts But the general premise just feels so old school to me Squirrel nutkin wants to play and tell riddles during whatever harvest pilgrimage the squirrels are on But there s a grumpy and poorly named owl who eventually hurts nutkin when he goes a little too far the message is that kids are supposed to learn to be respectful, stifle themselves, and pay tribute to people who can hurt them or something like that Blegh Totally the kind of children should be seen and not heard heavy handed crap that generation feels about children In the final scene, after nutkin s tail has been broken in half, he doesn t even like riddles any Like he s been traumatized for life for being too silly What a downer Don t read it to your kids.

    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 who lives on the island, for permission to gather nuts on the island Every time they bring him an offering, varying from three fat mice to wild honey and a new laid egg But Nutkin is expressively impertinent in his manners , singing riddles to the owl and keen to do mischief. Cute little story, the most gorgeous drawings, famous of Beatrix Potter The man in the wilderness said to me,How many strawberries grow in the seaI answered him as I thought good As many herrings as grow in the wood

    There is a place in my heart that is reserved only for Red Squirrels My boyfriend cannot get in there and neither can chocolate It pains me that I had to go all the way from the North of England to Lyon, France, just to see a Red Squirrel.I like to think of Beatrix Potter as an illustrator first, and then a story teller Her stories have a touch of twee, but I think each and every one has a side to it that speaks of the darkness of the nature she so adored Death is just a natural occurrence and there are small elements of that through these The World of Peter Rabbit stories.But the illustrations are utterly divine The one with the squirrels on little rafts, punting themselves over to Old Brown s island Possibly the cutest, most nature evocative illustration I ve ever seen The colours are Turneresque and it calms me beyond belief.The story Squirrel Nutkin is impertinent, but I also think he s just being Squirrel Nutkin Possibly with a touch of ADHD about him, as well He s full of life but hasn t quite grasped the notion of politeness Whilst the animals are all obviously personified beyond their natural scope, the darkness of nature is still firmly embedded which is why Old Brown bites off Nutkin s tail instead of just telling him to mind his manners There s really only so much an old owl can take.

    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 It s a wonder he didn t eat him after the second time.2 I want to know the answers to Nutkin s riddles I just knew Beatrix Potter would tell me before the book ended, but No Now I m wondering what animal is the little wee man, in a red red coat A staff in his hand, and a stone in his throat I m figuring it s a bird, but how will I ever know And who is Hitty Pitty 4 Lesson learned, Nutkin I would think so, skittering Half Tail Peter Rabbit was a childhood favorite, but I never read the others in Potter s set It seems it s time UPDATE While searching for the answer to the aforementioned riddle online I said I wanted to know I found not only the answer to that one, but to all of them, and amazingly enough, they were all in the book itself Apparently Beatrix Potter planned for people like me, and the answer to every riddle can be found on the same page as the riddle, written in italics I read that and thought, No way Yes way I totally missed all the italicized words And here I thought I was observant about things like that in books Wrong But Hurray for Beatrix Potter, for sneaking that one in there for people like me.

    I remembering loving this book as a child, so I thought I d give it a reread I ve always had a thing for squirrels, and I love watching them busy, gathering resources and in their own habitat How anyone can dislike them completely baffles me This book isn t as good as the first book, but I enjoyed it, all the same Squirrel Nutkin is a cheeky little squirrel who becomes over confident, and very nearly pays for it dearly, but actually, he still escapes with a price There are a lot of riddles in this story, and despite them being a tad confusing, I think they were a good addition to this story As with the first book in this gorgeous collection, the illustrations are exquisite, and completely faultless I can t wait to continue on to the next book

    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, she very graciously refrained from eating all the chocolate while I was surfing the web Truly, she is a pearl beyond price hide spoiler

    This is a story about being polite verses being rude Nutkin almost gets it in the end due to his rude behavior and he escapes at a price I don t know why I didn t enjoy this as much as the first My niblings didn t seems to be that into it either Interesting Still, that artwork is pretty It reminds me of Dumbledore and how he always treated even his enemies politely Maybe it deserves another star for how it s inviting me to ponder this OK, 4 stars.

    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 elderly Victorian gent such as grandfather or wealthy uncle When the owl gets sick of the squirrelly brat s antics, he puts him in his waistcoat pocket I ve often wanted to do that with certain spoiled toddlers of my acquaintance stuff them in a bag somewhere Someone pointed out to me the other day the dark thread that often runs through Potter s stories Mr Macgregor causing Peter s father to have an accident , bagging up the Flopsy bunnies, etc I got the feeling she had meant Nutkin to be devoured by the angry Owl, and then inserted the sentence this looks like the end of the story, but it isn t when the child she test ran it with perhaps burst into tears or became vocally upset I can also see where Allison Utley and some other children s authors got the idea of the feared and respected Owl, pillar and punisher of the animal community Even A A Milne s owl owes a debt to Potter s books, I think, as The Hundred Acre Wood made its first appearance nearly twenty years later.This is a much better read aloud than Potter s other squirrel story which I heartily disliked, though Nutkin s brother s name, Twinkleberry , always sets my teeth on edge Too twee for Potter s usual work.

    The Tale of Lumpen Comrade Chichikov, by Comrade Nikolai B Potter GogolAll 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 fields for the next year s crops Before Kulak Brown could answer, Lumpen Comrade Chichikov piped up, mocking the kulak with his nasty riddles and insults But the Kulak simply ignored him, nodded to the Bednyaks, and went into his farmhouse with the pot of okroshka While Chichikov, Chichikov went down to the creek and slept while his Comrades collected their seeds Days later the Bednyaks returned They d tried to make Comrade Chichikov stay away, but he wouldn t hear of it, and as they knocked on the door of Kulak Brown s farm house, he sat on the fence post crowing his delighted mockeries Kulak Brown ignored him assiduously and accepted their offered hachapuris without a word, waving them to the fields in search of their seeds The bednyaks worked, while Lumpen Comrade Chichikov mocked them from his fence post They returned a few days later with a beautiful buzhenina, knowing it was one of Kulak Brown s favourites Again he came on his porch only to be accosted by Comrade Chichikov s mocking riddles The Kulak stared at Lumpen Chichikov, shook his head in ever so slight disapproval, then turned back into his farmhouse bearing the ham The bednyaks worked while Chichikov played, trudging home tired and sore while their Lumpen Comrade skipped along gaily There stores of seeds were almost filled, but they knew they needed to return one time For that, they d saved a jug of their best vodka Returning a few days later, their offer of vodka was in the hands of Lumpen Comrade Chichikov, who would have it no other way He stood on the edge of the porch when Kulak Brown came out, and in the same mocking tones that were always his way, Chichikov offered the final gift Kulak Brown s face contorted for a second, then he stepped aside and waived Chichikov into his home The bednyaks knew their gift had been accepted and went off to complete their work, relieved that Chichikov had not ruined their offering Inside, Chichikov found himself in trouble There would be no sharing of vodka There would be know friendly teasing and answering of his riddles He was quickly subdued and found his leg chained to a post, and Kulak Brown stood in the corner, under lantern light, sharpening tools of torture Lumpen Comrad Chichikov saw only one chance He was close to an old, rusted, abandoned saw a metal saw, well warn and long unused He waited for Kulak Brown to leave the chamber, perhaps for some of that fine vodka, and he did the only thing he could he cut off his leg and crawled from Kulak Brown s farm with a tourniquet above his knee, and the bottom half of his leg still in the Kulak s chains And to this day, if a Comrade Bedynak passes poor stumpy Lumpen Comrade Chichikov, limping along the dirty road with his crutch, and asks the Lumpen Comrade a riddle, he will answer in a lusty voice full of song I Know no Other Such Land Where a Man Can Breathe so Free
