The tale of Squirrel Nutkin  Cover Image Book Book

The tale of Squirrel Nutkin / by Beatrix Potter.

Summary:

Squirrel Nutkin would rather ask the old owl riddles than gather nuts with the other squirrels. To celebrate Peter's birthday and the 100th anniversary of the publication of Tales of Peter Rabbit, Frederick Warne proudly announces all 23 of Beatrix Potter's original tales are now available in these special editions. They take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide, and introduce favorite characters to a new generation. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques. The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before. It has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, The Tale of Peter Rabbit restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before. Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle Duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.
