Beatrix Potter's timeless books remain literary classics, and one hundred years after they were written, the tale of Squirrel Nutkin and his fateful journey across the river to Owl Island still brings the same pleasure to children all over the world that it gave to its very first reader.
This beautifully made book by our friends at Penguin doesn't look a lot different from the first edition, with lovely illustrations and the wonderful words of Britain's greatest ever children's author still delighting readers, young and old.
This enchanting tale is as fresh and enjoyable today as it ever was - children still love hearing about Nutkin's narrow escape from the claws of Old Brown!
This lovely book looks like it has come from a better time and place - the publishers have been really clever in not losing the traditional innocence of Beatrix Potter's story.
Even now, Squirrel Nutkin is one of children's literature's most famous characters - his games of ninepins with a crab apple never fails to delight!
