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 [...]
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, [...]
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 br br br br
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 [...]
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 boring Also, I found it a tiny bit unsettling that squirrels were bring mice as a sacrifice to an owl in a children s book.
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 Probably a far better story when you are not bound my adult logic
I had to read this again after Wendy Doniger called Squirrel Nutkin a truly sinister theological character.
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 [...]
I understand this is supposed to be about respecting your elders, but I feel like this squirrel has a mental disorder.
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
Urgh Reviewed, and then lost it when the page decided to play games This seemed to have a bit 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 as the wording of the riddles which often time seemed to be a bit of a teasing poem than a riddle, but this could be because the book was published 111 years ago I m sure they re amusing when reading them to a child, rather than s [...]
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 easy enough for me was too easy by far.Well, in The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin, by Beatrix Potter, the riddles are quite difficult and utterly stumped me These are riddles with which cheeky and rude Squirrel Nutkin taunts [...]
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 each object called out in the text is carefully rendered in the illustrations Though now that I ve had some run ins with nettles, I can t believe Old Brown didn t snatch up and gobble down Squirrel Nutkin when that [...]
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 conveys a sense of autumn with many browns and soft lighting Oh, and Mr Brown the Owlhe lives in a hollow oak tree with stained glass windows I want that The man in the wilderness said to me,How many strawberries grow i [...]
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 favorited 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 about the delightfully named Twinkleberry.
a tale about a tailnfusing, a little.entertaining absolutly.
Read this to our two year old yesterday for the first time Lots of laughter and giggles during Nutkin s riddles and rhymes.
This is so funny, naughty nutkin got a dose of his own medicine, very rude and impolite squirrel learned his lesson very well i guess.
How much do I love Potter Read them all Twice Then thrice Tuck them under pillows, dog beds, and in rose bushes Who wouldn t want to find these gems everywhere
I think squirrels are adorable animals They don t live in New Zealand, so whenever I m in a country that has them I end up watching them skittering around the trees and parks, absolutely charmed When I convey that charm to those around me, there are generally disapproving noises and grumbles of pests so I can only imagine they hold possum status for people who have to deal with them on a regular basis, but nonetheless I am charmed and the same holds true here Don t get me wrong, Squirrel Nutkin [...]
I read this book with my son through Easy Peasy School online He seemed to pay attention to the story but wasn t totally taken by it Squirel Nutkin is a naughty squirrel who shows Mr Brown no respect He thinks it s funny to tease and taunt Mr Brown while all his siblings and cousins watch on in amazement Nutkin is pretty brazen and just doesn t get ituntil the end of the book haha He got what was coming to him though The book is about 2 chapters in length and we read it in two days The language [...]
This book is hilarious It s perfect for me, because I love squirrels, so if you also love squirrels, this is the book for you Also check out some other books by Beatrix Potter, because they are just really nice stories, and fit well in the classics category This book perfectly captures the personality of squirrels trust me, I would know what the personality of a squirrel is like, I practically AM one and is really really fun to read Definitely super short, it IS a children s book but only takes [...]
