Squirrel Nutkin Illustrations Free Printables

Beatrix Potter


There are possibly no illustrations more quaint and charming for the fall season than those of Beatrix Potter’s famous tale of Squirrel Nutkin.

Join Nutkin, his brother Twinkleberry, and their many cousins as they set sail to Owl Island on little rafts they constructed of twigs.


The journey was made to offer the terrifying owl guardian of the island, Old Brown, a gift.


Every day for six days, the squirrels fill their sacks with nuts. First always offering gifts of fat minnows, fat mice, or a fat mole to Old Brown.


And every day six days in a row Nutkin taunts him with riddles in song. Eventually, Nutkin annoys Old Mr. Brown to the end of his patience.


Nutkin narrowly escapes but loses most of his tail. After this, he becomes furious when he is given riddles.
