Book Review: Tumtum and Nutmeg: Adventures Beyond Nutmouse Hall by Emily Bearn


I saw Tumtum & Nutmeg: Adventures Beyond Nutmouse Hall by Emily Bearn in an email list I receive. I thought it looked like a fun book to read so I quickly put it on hold at the library.

Product Description:
Deep inside the broom cupboard of Rose Cottage, two mice live in great style.

Tumtum and Nutmeg lead cozy and quiet lives, secretly looking after Arthur and Lucy, the disheveled human children of the cottage, never dreaming that so many exciting adventures will soon find them. But when evil Aunt Ivy, a squeamish schoolteacher named Miss Short, and pirating pond rats threaten the safety of those they hold dear, the courageous pair will stop at nothing to save the day.

In three thrilling tales with charming illustrations in every chapter, Tumtum and Nutmeg--along with the valiant efforts of veteran hero General Marchmouse, Ms. Tiptoe's bouncing ballerina army, and a team of caged gerbils--prove that small-size mice can have world-size hearts.

Tumtum & Nutmeg: Adventures Beyond Nutmouse Hall is really a 3 in 1 book. It is a compilation of Tumtum & Nutmeg, The Great Escape and The Pirates' Treasure that were released separately in Great Britain. The stories were enjoyable and cute with some memorable characters. My favorite story was The Pirates' Treasure. I think most children between 6-10 would really enjoy these stories. Also, check out The World of Nutmeg & Tumtum.
