The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin follows a group of squirrels who travel to Owl Island to collect nuts. An owl named Old Brown allows them to forage, but Nutkin taunts the owl with daily riddles. Eventually, Nutkin annoys Old Brown once too often, and makes a narrow escape.
The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin reflects Beatrix Potter's interest in fairy tales, rhymes, and riddles, and sheds light on her embedded social and political themes. Some have likened Squirrel Nutkin's impertinent behaviour to that of the rebellious working-class of Potter's own day. Potter also breaks the traditional fairy tale mould by tacitly inviting her readers to solve the riddles -- a task typically reserved for the fairy tale hero.
