Beatrix wrote this for a more worldly population. This was dedicated to an American girl and it is about a grey school, which they came from America. The artwork is most stunning in this story. The kids loved this one and so did I. The squirrels gathering nuts get into some troubles. A fun story. This is a good place to start after Peter Rabbit.

Timmy Tiptoes a squirrel is working hard along with his wife to hoard food for the approaching winter. I was not aware that squirrels dig holes in the ground to hide their winter hoards and then they have difficulty finding the same spot. I always felt that when it concerns food and survival almost all animals are more evolved then men. Anyway, Timmy Tiptoes meets Chippy Hackee 'The Chipmunk' in very unusual circumstances and he is forced to live along with him because they have got themselves s [...]

Timmy & that whats-his-name chipmunk, uh, they're total assholes. Not so sure about the plotrt of incoherent.

Some critics consider The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes one of Beatrix Potter's lesser tales, a slapdash attempt to appease publishers with a Tale about North American wildlife. The plot may be a bit thin, but the real problem with The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes is little Chippy Hackee.Chippy Hackee is a chipmunk who has run away from his wife and home to hang out in a hollow tree eating Timmy and Goody Tiptoes' stash of nuts. When a gang of squirrels push Timmy Tiptoes through the hole, Chippy is delighted [...]

Having spent a little of my childhood in England and Scotland, I have a soft spot for squirrels. The red ones. Not so grey squirrels; observing their frenetic antics in Washington, DC, I decided that they were creepy little critters, a thought confirmed by this tale. As Beatrix Potter's following grew, she picked up fans in America and this book was a concession to them, featuring the aforementioned critters, chipmunks and even a black bear. An allegory about bullying, isolation and being a free [...]

Very clever Timmy and Goody Tiptoes. Short reads are always enjoyable to read mostly when it involves talking animals.

A bit of a disturbing tale where friends of the Tiptoes - the chipmunks - have an unhealthy marriage. Poor Mrs. Hackee! :(

a wonderful tale of whimsy

I was surprised that this book focused on husbands leaving their wives. The illustrations were cute, though. I've always found gray squirrels and chipmunks cute.

I'm not entirely sure what the lesson is, but I enjoyed the story. This one seems to have more science nature facts than the others I've read so far.

This is the first book I've ever read by Beatrix Potter. I saw a few of her drawings in the V&A which are very good, and again here, they are very well drawn and digitally-remastered. The story though aieieie I think Beatrix must've been sniffing the laudanum or something. It took all of two minutes to read. It starts off as a super-soppy story about squirrels, there's a kind of Squirrel Goodfellas moment over nuts, then a chipmunk and a bear don't really do anything (I thought this was supp [...]

A Beatrix Potter I haven't read before! Oh frabjous day not one of my favourites, but it's still a cute little story about squirrels and the perils of badly hidden nuts. Highlight is as always the illustrations; the best one was of poor Timmy being stuffed into his own hiding hole by a horde of maddened and forgetful squirrels. I did wonder at the appearance of the bear and chipmunk, however. It seems the British countryside has been abandoned for the American one

3.5 stars. This book is a classic, with a nice storyline and absolutely beautiful illustrations. I mean, they were BEAUTIFUL. This was a very cute and quick book to read, and I liked it a lot.

I always adore the sweet and innocent illustrations of the Beatrix Potter stories. The language is old fashioned and proper. The stories of woodland creatures is so imaginative.


Dig a little deeper, and you will find this is the darkest Beatrix Potter story ever.

I like the art, but dear gods and kittens, the story kinda hurts.

An okay addition to Potter's animal stories, though not one of the better ones. This one focuses on squirrels hiding nuts, and the drama that ensues when a bunch of birds sing about stealing nuts. Timmy Tiptoes is presented as a somewhat clever, but too optimistic animal, hiding nuts in tree hollows he can only access when he has lost weight in winter. He appears alongside the chipmunk Chippy Hackee, who is fairly malicious, though he gets his own comeuppance.A good story for fall, to help expla [...]

Awww! So cute! And I liked the illustrations as well. Would've liked to have more of the story & more character development. It would make a cute concept for an animated kids' movie.My Granny got this as a hardcover book for me when she visited England in July 1983, when she went to Hilltop Beatrix Potter's House at Sawrey.I would've enjoyed reading this to my nieces (or my sister & younger cousins when they were little). They would've gotten a kick out of my commentary that I had on som [...]

In this easy read fantasy book, Timmy Tiptoes a fat grey squirrel and his wife Goody Tiptoes must lay up a store of ripe nuts for the winter and spring. Unfortunately, there was a terrible misunderstanding and Timmy ends up inside the trunk of a dead tree, but before long a storm blows down the tree so he can return to his wife Goody. This book would be appropriate for younger children starting with kindergarten. The context of this book is appropriate for every young child! The book could be co [...]

One of the tales which I knew by heart at one time and now would have to read it to know anything at all. This little gem, however, holds a special place in my heart as it was my choice for my storytelling lesson -- assignment: tell -- not read-- a favorite story to a class of wiggly kindrergarten sturdents -- I still have the little fuzzy figurine of a grey squirrel with the furry tail which I used as a prop sitting in the curio case. Timmy ranks right on a par with Peter in my pick of the Pott [...]

This is another Beatrix Potter book, originally copyrighted in 1911. A married squirrel couple gathers nuts for the winter but Timmy Tiptoes, the husband, is attacked by a group of squirrels who think he's been taking their buried nuts for his own.Timmy encounters a chipmunk and together they are in a tree, the chipmunk having run away from his wife. Eventually the pair is discovered and things are sort of set right.It's a rather strange tale, and I'm not sure what it's meaning is.

Another bizarre Beatrix Potter story. Timmy Tiptoes is out collecting nuts for the winter with his wife, the other squirrels get the idea that Timmy has been stealing their nuts so they stuff him into a hole in a tree trunk. Inside the tree he meets Chippy Hackee, a chipmunk, who has run away from his wife and who encourages Timmy to eat the nuts stored inside the tree trunk until he is too fat to fit back out of the hole.

Read as part of The Beatrix Potter CollectionSilvertail and Timmy Tiptoes are two wonderful names for squirrels. Never knew they usually forget the place where they hide their food.4 stars because I feel that I need to differentiate it from the others, but, alas it's still not up to par with others such as The Tale of Peter Rabbit or The Tale of Benjamin Bunny.

This is about squirrels and chipmunks saving up nuts for the winter. On one level, the plot about what happens to the squirrel, it feels blandly generic. There is, however, an amusing comment on marriage in the reaction of Timmy and wife, Goody, to the events. Potter's is a very pragmatic view of marriage, is what I'm saying.I own it.

Read this one to Evelyn tonight. It was cute but like a few other reviewers, I found it disjointed here and there. I stopped in a few places to check if I had skipped a page and then reread the section.

Beautifully written and illustrated tale following Timmy Tiptoes as he is accused of stealing nuts by the other squirrels and forced into a tree trunk where he meets a friendly chipmunk who looks after him until he can escape. A classic tale that will appeal to adults and children alike

"For many unknown little friends, including Monica"This is basically a story about squirrels getting really fat and hiding their nuts. and then singing, "who's been digging up my nuts??" Nobody ever answers! eventually they get a padlock. seriously.

This is a quaint little tale about woodland creatures trying to prepare for the winter. Even though other animals may threaten to take their food away from them, Timmy Tiptoes has another plan entirely!
