Picked up with another Allan Wright title, because their size, format and subject-matter reminded me of Beatrix Potter's work, The Story of a Saucy Squirrel follows the adventures of a busy squirrel, as he forages for food and comes into contact with the other woodland creatures...

Like Mrs. Bunnykins' Busy Day by the same author, this miniature picture book, published in 1926, was a disappointment. The first-person narrative is a wooden recitation of facts, the illustrations - both color plates and blue line drawings - are uninteresting. The inclusion, toward the end of the book, of a golliwog (a type of black-faced doll), is perhaps not surprising in a book of this era, but will still be quite distressing to many contemporary readers. All in all, this is a title that deserves to be out of print, and will probably only be of interest to those who collect the Royal Doulton figurines that were created based upon Wright's characters.
