The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin
This is a Tale about a tail—a tail that belonged to a little red squirrel, and his name was Nutkin. Are you ready for a tall tale of tails?

When all the other little squirrels go over to Owl Island to collect nuts on Old Brown Owl’s land, Squirrel Nutkin thinks making fun of Mr Owl is great fun, but he might not think so for long.
