Crack a Story


At the top of a nut-tree lives a squirrel.


A squirrel made of red stone.


It runs up and down the tree all day long, eating the nuts that grow there.


Nuts of gold and silver, paper nuts, china nuts, straw nuts, nuts of every possible kind.


And each time the squirrel cracks a nut, it tells a story...


In this marvellously inventive new collection, Susan Price gives us seven of the stone squirrel's stories, transporting us to the vivid and extraordinary world of time-honoured folk tales.
