How to Keep a Pet Squirrel
While dipping into a children’s encyclopaedia from 1910, Axel Scheffler came across a small but indispensible guide to procuring and caring for a pet squirrel.
Intrigued by this oddity, Axel’s imagination set to work. He created a series of delightful, beautifully finished illustrations to accompany the text.
How to Keep a Pet Squirrel is the result - a charming and beguiling curiosity, packed full of wise advice for the adventurous child of a century ago: *
· Plenty of nuts should be provided
· Remember that the squirrel is by its nature a very agile creature, springing from tree to tree
· Such an animal is difficult to tame and always likely, when suddenly alarmed, to give our finger a nasty nip with its teeth
* Of course, no child today would be silly enough to capture and keep a wild squirrel.
