The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin
The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin is a children’s book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter and first published by Frederick Warne & Co. in August 1903. The story is about an impertinent red squirrel named Nutkin and his narrow escape from an owl called Old Brown. The book followed Potter’s hugely successful The Tale of Peter Rabbit and was an instant hit. The now familiar endpapers of the Peter Rabbit series were introduced in the book.
The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin Summary
In 1901, Potter passed her summer holiday at the country estate of Lingholm in the Lake District and from there sent a story and picture letter about a red squirrel colony in Cumberland to Norah Moore, the daughter of her former governess, Annie Moore. She spent the summer sketching squirrels, the landscape around Lingholm, and St Herbert’s Island which would eventually become Owl Island in Squirrel Nutkin. Formerly the isolated home of the anchorite monk Herbert of Derwentwater (d. 20 March 687), St Herbert’s Island lies in the center of Derwentwater south of Keswick, Cumbria. Potter sketched and photographed the island from both sides of the lake, from the shores at Lingholm. The island and its surroundings can be accurately identified from Potter’s illustrations. Potter photographed Old Brown’s gnarled tree and the forest detritus in black and white. The tree stood for many years after Potter’s visit.
