This brochure is an advertisement for The Squirrel by T. C. Bridges. Excerpt from Publisher's Note reprinted on first page: "The last addition of the popular series of Animal Autobiographies is the Life of the Squirrel, the winsome, shy creature who is one of the few wild animals now left in England who can be watched in his native haunts without great difficulty." Continuation of Publisher's Note on verso of first page: "Animal books, if they are fresh and written by those who possess intimate knowledge of their subject, are eagerly asked for at the libraries and from the booksellers. In view of this, Messrs. Adam and Charles Black are publishing a series of Animal Autobiographies. Each volume deals entirely with the life-story of some one animal, and is not merely a collection of animal stories. It is necessary to emphasize this, as the idea of the series has sometimes been misunderstood. Children who have outgrown fairy-tales undoubtedly prefer this form of story to any other, and a more wholesome way of stimulating their interest in the living things around them could hardly be found." There is also a sample page from the book and a list of the book's chapters and illustrations.
