Baby Squirrel Is Good at Everything

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Beatty, a weak squirrel shapeshifter who was born into a lion family.
Because of that, I lived my life being abused at my aunt’s house in the Capital.
When I told my only friend and fiancé, the Second Prince, that I would leave to achieve my dream,

‘Ritter, you bastard…!’

I died on his fangs.

I opened my eyes again to my childhood, the time before I got myself involved with the Second Prince.
At times like this, what do you need? Speed.
I immediately withdrew my body only and ran away to the territory of my biological father, the Lion Duke.

Though I won’t be welcomed, if I possess this one great secret that will only be discovered in the future, I won’t get kicked ou—

“Welcome, Young Miss!”
“OMG! When did you grow up like this…?”
“Young Miss is walking with those two cute feet!”

… Huh? Why am I welcomed like this?
No way, is that my statue?

I'm enjoying this. A lot. Here's why-

firstly, I like the relationship between her and her brother. It's realistic. Arguing and teasing each other, annoying the hell out of you but secretly caring about the other too. This is how it actually is IRL, but somehow it's very rare in novels.

secondly, how the dad cares in his own way. I mean yes, he could do better but he isn't really that cold. Beatty sees that contrast too, although she ignores it and misinterprets it.

someone in the comments mentioned how could the... more>> dad and bro not realise she's abused when she flinches so much. The answer to that is,
Spoiler

we've been told they are battle-warriors, known and feared as war maniacs, all the people they ever see cower in fear in front of them, do you really think, their weak daughter flinching and cowering would stand out? They didn't even see her for 5 years, so they can even do the 'she should be used to us by now' factor. Daddy even asked his aide whether his outer appearance was scary and the answer was yes.

[collapse]

Daddy mentioned the reasons he sent her there, which are better than the "I had a reason" reasons in most manhwas.
Spoiler

her weak body couldn't bear the cold of the north and literally nearly died. Daddy sent Beatty and mommy both to the capital. Mommy died there, daddy couldn't even see her. He wanted to go there but he has been at war for 5 years. Instead, he left her with her maternal aunt. Because she was the younger sister of his wife, he trusted her to take good care of his child.

TLDR, Beatty is weak, and can't handle the north's weather. Also, daddy wants his baby far from the dangers of war because the duchy is often at the forefront of the war.

[collapse]
I seriously don't understand why you guys oppose this, it's quite understandable, isn't it?

thirdly? Fourthly? I lost count- I loved how as soon as she returned,
Spoiler

she slapped the FK out of that ritter bastard. Like she broke his fang lol. Girl power moment

and then she ran away. Smart choice. Instead of being like other fls where she sits and waits for an opportunity, Beatty sprinted asap. She got the freedom she oh so desired (tho momentarily), travelled, and reached her family.

[collapse]

She is so cute. If you're about to mention "she's grown at mind but acts like a kid"- Excuse Moi mademoiselle.
Spoiler

she repeatedly said, "a world limited to her room and ritter" or something between that. Basically, she emphasized often how for eighteen years, the only world she saw was through books, even those that she secretly accidentally found. She never had any exposure, and you mature/grow by being in the world. Despite that after returning, her young tendencies came out of course, but she also acted maturely and thought bigger. Keep in mind this was her first time, and she often lost confidence in herself, tho I'm glad that as "she is born with the spirit of a warrior" she didn't fall apart too much.

[collapse]

As for, "the family should have known", HOW???
Spoiler

they sent her to her maternal aunt. Her 'family'. They got reports every month. Sent gifts and letters regularly. Saw her portraits every month. Do you really think they would expect that she's mistreated?

Although Beatty never received those gifts, letters and love; the daddy has no way of knowing.

Atel, who saw Beatty before thought she was a commoner. From her lifestyle and her words, he thought, she at most was a maids daughter. It was only after he really realises that she's the dukedom's princess that he looks into her. Only because he saw her before.

[collapse]

As for the "she never told them anything, remains silent, should tell them" BRUH listen to yourself???? You're admitting she's been abused and mistreated, do you really think she can be upfront about it???
Spoiler

she was constantly brainwashed since little, made into thinking her dad hates her. She doesn't deserve it, she's a disgrace, an insignificant half.

Even if she realises it's all lies, the effects don't just poof and go away. Even when she gets the feeling of maybe, the effects come back and she changes the meaning and interpretation according to what's been fed to her mind. And FYI she didn't go there to 'expose her aunt' the only reason she decided to go to the family who supposedly hates her and considers her a shame is because that's the only place that can protect her for now.

I forgot what it was called but the very special and imp thing to shapeshifter is currently in obvious eyes. She could be auctioned or sold as s*aves or kidnapped and robbed of her stone and killed. The only two "safe places" for a shapeshifter are her actual family and the imperial palace. The latter being the home of ritter, someone she just punches and is escaping, and the first one being the misinterpreted hate-me family.

she just needs to stay there for 10 years then she'll escape. That's her plan because then she can hide her "power stone" thing. She never intended on remaining there and asking for their love and attention. That is also why she exchanges her knowledge for a chance to stay, making proposals and stuff.

[collapse]

I do agree they could use some communication, but it's going perfectly right now. And I believe a conversation is obviously approaching them, definitely gonna abe in the soon future.

last but not least, don't say she was neglected by her father.
Spoiler

yea, she wasn't named. She only got her name at the age of ten. (Before regression) but that because

  1. north people care a lot about the name, believing that wrong names could affect the child's life.
  2. daddy was spending time and effort looking for the best, most precious names. He indeed took too long but that shows how much he cared.
  3. he wracked his brains during all his free time, for a name relating to healthy and happiness because he wants his weak daughter to have a good life.
  4. he had been thinking of the name "beatty" for years. It meant blessing. But he was just worried and not sure if it would suit her.
[collapse]

All in all, I simply can not understand the reasoning of people, the things you all are pointing out, y'all should just read fairy tales for kids then. The author is following a realistic approach and just the perfect pacing.

I'm not saying I oppose you have different tastes, it might not be to your liking, I don't care. If you don't like it, don't read it, but don't just give those lame, irrelevant and s*upid reasons. Offence intended.

basically, it's a great read. Highly recommended. <<less

I- uhm, I don't know how to feel about this so far. Like I love the premise but some parts just rub me the wrong way. Let me just elaborate...

What can I say, the misunderstandings are too aggravating! The squirrel girl thinks her father doesn't like her because he won't let her stay in her dad's duchy, but her dad has a good reason of wanting to send her to the capital. But the thing is, she's treated horribly in the capital by her aunt, to the extent that... more>> it's literally abuse. When she arrives in the duchy she's obviously malnourished, confused, insecure and uncomfortable with adults, which are glaring signs that she's being mistreated?! So why is nobody saying or doing anything about it?! Instead they're letting this cute little girl struggle and come up with 'proposals' to prove her worth. Also, she's obviously very intelligent but they still talk down to her. Like come on, have some respect for the squirrel genius.

The dad is an absolute tsundere, like he literally can't express how much he loves her. But that's also very annoying because everything he says gets taken in the wrong way by squirrel girl. And I find his intelligence a bit questionable... your daughter ran away from the capital, malnourished and scared af. She flinches when you raise your hand at her, and you still. Want. To. Send. Her. Back. Are you not suspicious at all? Come on lion dude, despite being a war hero or whatever you lack observational skills...

The overall tone of the beginning was very sad, and I felt super bad for squirrel girl and what she went through. So I was eagerly waiting for some form of retribution, but there's literally nothing in the first 30 chapters like she only gets to meet her dad now. Instead, it was just fluff, but unsatisfactory fluff, because squirrel girl did not get justice!

Perhaps the only saving grace so far is squirrel girls brother who is very siscon and nice to her, and the translator, who's doing a wonderful job. Apart from that however, I've just been waiting for divine punishment for the evil dudes. I did enjoy reading it though, and I have a feeling it'll get better, but until then... <<less

Main Girl suffers abuse and betrayal. Goes back in time acting like she'll be headstrong and change things. Goes home with the intention to reveal what she was going through and how to stop the current war. Proceeds to say nothing. Even when almost being forced back she can't muster the courage to say anything. Could probably cut the chapters from 22 to 4. Literally nothing happens in most of them. Thats ok with Fluff stories but this one makes it seem like it'll stretch one small encounter to 3... more>> chapters of nothing. Good time waster if you're bored I guess but don't get your hopes up. <<less

This novel is slow af. Like fr I want them (Beatty and the Dubbleds) to solve their misunderstanding quickly, punish the bad people, talk about her past life etc. The fluff is okay. It's really irrating me when she and her father don't say the truth from the heart and the misunderstanding keeps getting handful. The FL is honestly cute and it's hurt when she'd been betrayed by her one and only friend, don't have her parents with her, been abused verbally and neglected by everyone in the capital.

you do not know how much anger I felt while reading this. Call me petty but I cannot like either the father and/or the brother. I just can’t. And I won’t like them until they know what the FL went through. The fluff so far is just unsatisfactory. It makes it seem like all the love she’s getting is just fake. I know they really love her and it’s real. Yet it seems so fake. I think the author is trying to make the readers like the brother, father, and... more>> workers. But it’s just not working. At least not for me.

It doesn’t make sense to me that she’s not feeling that angry or resentful towards the workers and her brother and father. She went through 18 years of abuse. Her ‘friend’ of ten years turned out to be fake and killed her. I thought she would confront them about what she thought as them ‘abandoning’ her.

it makes me more upset that the father did not check up on her at all in those 18 years. You’d expect he would at least go visit her. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. And how does he not know what she went through. Isn’t he supposed to be the most powerful, almighty duke or something? Surely he would at least be informed of just what was happening inside that aunts house. It’s just misunderstandings on top of misunderstandings.

Also. They kept calling her a “rebellious runaway”. That annoyed me so much. You all don’t understand. I was clenching my blanket. Like she just escaped from an abuser. Rebellious my a**. And there was so many clues that she was not being treated right. One being when the brother showed FL her room. And she specifically said that she didn’t mind if the room was less luxurious and out of sight. HOW DID HE NOT PICK UP ON THAT CLUE!!???? Maybe he did later on but I’m dropping this before I reach that point. I can’t stand this anymore. <<less

I love this story so much. I always reading fantasy novels with a father/daughter relationship. The sibling relationships are an extra bonus. The FL being a squirrel and the family members being huge lions adds so much to the story. I am constantly checking to see the latest updates. Thank you guys so so much for translating this. A 5 out of 5 is not enough for me to express how amazing this story and you guy’s transitions are. If I have to give it a true rating, I would... more>> say a 6 out of 5. :) Can wait to see more of the father and brother. Please keep up the hard work. :D <<less

Though the current chapters are only up to chapter 10, I can tell that this novel would be one of my favourite fluff novels. ❤❤ There's not much going on so far about Beatty's relationship with her dad, everyone in the mansion is so cute too (except that Count dude I don't like him) and I'm glad that her brother is gradually turning into a siscon it's sooooo cuteeeee!! I wish to see more of the fluff in the future and may the scums in this story all broke their teeth... more>> when they eat their food and accidentally swallowed the teeth down.

Thank you to the translator too for translating this novel I've been waiting for it ever since I saw the novel cover posted by the author in twitter. The translations are great and easy to understand thank you so much once again to the translator 🥰🥰 <<less

I'm enjoying this a lot. The main character does seem a bit dumber than expected, but some authors believe that a young body will place limitations on the regressor's intellect, which might be the reasoning here. Personally, even if that was really true, I think it's best to only place physical limits, not intellectual ones. In any case, it doesn't affect my enjoyment of this fluffy story at all.

So much fluff that gives cavities. It's extremely cheesy. My biggest criticism is how idiotic the MC looks like, I don't see any trace of a teenage girl's mind, so far she's a girl with a child's mind, not a more mature mind who has returned to a younger body. As much as you cannot expect maturity from a teenage girl, you don't even notice that here.

I totally love this one!

'm giving the father the benefit of the doubt as to why he left his daughter, like can't he find another guardian or something just within their territory?

And I do hope that jerk prince is not the ML coz he's crazy. Right now I'm expecting for more fluffy moments with the brother.

This is really good, I already look forward to reading more about the father and brother and him why all those apparent misunderstandings. The MC's dream is great and I hope he achieves it but seeing how ML seems to be a prince... We just have to wait and see. Although I am not 100% sure that ML is one of the princes, everything indicates that it is him. The first prince to be exact, since the second accumulates mass desires to pull out his fangs one by one and... more>> without anesthesia. I recommend that you judge his own criteria as I tend to comment based on my tastes but, everything so far is promising. The translation is great, there is nothing that is not understood or that is even a bit confusing. In conclusion, a 10 out of 10. It goes straight to my priority list of novels that I follow. <<less

I actually really agree with @Doodoo, I have very mixed feelings on this. At parts its super sweet and I'm smiling until my cheeks hurt. At other parts I'm cursing at the MC and her father for being so f*cking oblivious.

Like, if the father just opened his eyes for a bit he would be able to tell that she's been abused, she flinches every time her aunt comes near her and the only tie she takes the initiative to meet him is when she's trying to convince him to let... more>> her stay. Unfortanetely, all he can think about is how she almost died as an infant and how she's related to her aunt so of course she's going to be treated well. I just don't like it.

But also. It's really cute. So 3 stars it is and I'll come back once more chapters are stockpiled to judge it again. <<less

Premature review- The story is cute, tho it seems to be dragging a bit. So far it's mainly just the MC keeping silent and being confused but I can't wait to see how the plot goes. No sight of the ML or father so far and she just met her brother so I'll be patient until something happens. I'm not the biggest fans of misunderstanding plot devices but the cover is way too cute.

Her whole family is tr*sh and it's too frustrating to read this it's written like the father/brother are blameless. Also why wouldn't the MC resent her family for abandoning her? Shit's too frustratingly dumb to be fluff.

I've only read a few chapters, but I can't help but feel resentful of the duchy's servants and the MC's family as a whole. Like, seriously, how could you be so flipping oblivious to your daughter's or your young mistress' actual situation? The signs are all there. Like, seriously, how can you not have one suspicious bone in your body?

It is not an excuse to say that you didn't know, because as a parent, it's your flipping job to know what's going on with your children! This is negligence. Obviously,... more>> it is unintentional, but it is still negligence. Also, how can you not actually go and check on the little girl or find some way to keep track of her? I thought that MC's dad is supposed to be someone powerful, rich and influential. So, there you have it, he had loads of resources and opportunities. <<less

The type of family that loves and is protective of their children is always my favorite, esp when the MC seek revenge to those who abused her.

But I will say now that the plot progress is so slow, like MC can always tell her brother or her head maid what really happens when she lived with her aunt, but she just let it slide and *BAM* here we go onto the different subject. It's always like that and truthfully I'm irritated right now so I would recc to you who... more>> want to read it to stack up the chap and wait until it have 100 chapter-ish.

As for why the MC look dumb and not act like a teenager, I thinks it's partly bcs
Spoiler

she have been kept in the house for 10 years, never got the chance to go out, lacking experience and when she finally want to flee SHE DIED, so I think thats normal. But yeah she could have explained things she went through, no misunderstanding

It is cute but also going far too slow of a pace for anyone.

After 50 chapters of just the same thing, which is treating the MC as a rebellious child and not actually paying attention or caring why she doesn’t want to go to the capital. It is a little hard to keep going with no actual progress happening due to zero proper communication.

And her family still has no idea that her aunt is abusing the MC, both physically and verbally, with no signs of realizing anytime soon.

... more>>
Spoiler

Personally, the story doesn’t make any sense.

The MC’s solution to everything so far is a poisonous fruit that comes with its own antidote in its stems.
The royal family wants to harm the people protecting it. And doesn’t care if it results in the death of many people or extending the war.

The MC gets kidnapped by a squirrel that doesn’t even have the time to explain anything. So why bother kidnapping her in the first place to ditch her in the forest?

I am not sure how the MC is going to become a merchant when she is the type to give the item away before asking for payment. She helped solve hunger for the soldiers and the people in exchange to stay until she is an adult. The results was that she can stay for a month.

Everyone assumes she ran away from the capital so that she could be with her family. But never tells her why she has to stay in the capital. Nor do they ask how her life was in the capital. And don’t wonder why she is asking to be allowed to stay only until she is an adult. Like that sounds suspicious and weird.

[collapse]

Overall, it is a rather sad and cute story. Sad due to no one realizing that the MC is suffering and trying to establish her importance in order to gain a safe place to stay until she is old enough. Cute because she is a squirrel shapeshifter. Her interaction with her family would have been cute if not for the severe lack of actual communication and heavy misunderstanding in play that just drives people insane.
Spoiler

Character growth is also going really slow...

After 50 chapters, only recently did the MC realize her aunt might have lied to her about how her family actually feels about her. And only cause she happened to overhear a conversation that contradictions her aunts claims. Yet, not because her family and everyone there treats her like a cute treasure that must be protected at all times.
