CyberCrayon cover for the classic children's story The Tale Of Squirrel Nutkin, by Beatrix Potter

In the autumn, a group of squirrels journey across the lake to gather nuts on Owl Island, home of the owl called Old Brown. All the squirrels are polite to Old Brown except for impertinent squirrel named Nutkin. Rude little Squirrel Nutkin continually tries the patience of the old owl and barely escapes his clutches, leaving part of his tail behind. He should have had better manners! This classic children's story, featuring beautiful illustrations, has been loved for generations.
