Children Bailey, Arthur Scott: The Tale of Frisky Squirrel, v.1, 7 June 2008
#1  vivaldirules 06-07-2008, 04:51 PM
Arthur Scott Bailey was the author of more than forty children's books including The Tale of Frisky Squirrel which was illustrated by Eleanor Fagan. Of all his books, I'm not sure why I chose this one to post. I hope you enjoy it!
Frisky Squirrel was a lively little chap. And he was very bold, too. You see, he was so nimble that he felt he could always jump right out of danger - no matter whether it was a hawk chasing him, or a fox springing at him, or Yvan [okay, it really says boy, but no harm in personalizing him, eh?] throwing stones at him. He would chatter and scold at his enemies from some tree-top. And it was seldom that he was so frightened that he ran home and hid inside his mother's house.

Ha, Hah!
You thought I wouldn't find this thread, did you?
Oh, the aberration, concocting mischief with the evil. SHAME ON YOU!!?!!

For your information, I wouldn't waste my time throwing measly stones at a champion of reflexes like Martha. As a true woodworker I would CUT THE TREE DOWN for harboring a criminal; evil thing! And curse its seedlings for eternity...

as well as some others by the same author.

It just shows that those squirrels are breeding and taking over the book upload section.

I knew you'd enjoy it, Yvan.

Yes, I see that RWood had already posted eleven of Bailey's books in October. Did I bother to check yesterday before spending an hour or two on this one???? Noooooooo. Sorry. As penance, maybe I should now do the other thirty or so that he wrote.
