Squirrel Nutkin and his brother Twinkleberry.
One autumn when the nuts were ripe, and the leaves on the hazel bushes were golden and green—Nutkin and Twinkleberry and all the other little squirrels came out of the wood, and down to the edge of the lake.
They made little rafts out of twigs, and they paddled away over the water to Owl Island to gather nuts.
Each squirrel had a little sack and a large oar, and spread out his tail for a sail.
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.
