In the Tale of Squirrel Nutkin, a naughty squirrel, and his many cousins sail to Owl Island on a mission to collect nuts. While obtaining permission from old Owl Brown, naughty Squirrel Nutkin disrespectfully dances around, singing a nonsensical song. As the collecting continues, Squirrel Nutkin's naughty antics only increase. Will old Owl Brown notice? The second of Beatrix Potter's 22 charmingly illustrated tales of animals in amusing situations, The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin has delighted children since 1903.
