Product Description

Review

"> On Tumtum and Nutmeg, the Sunday Times said: 'Told simply, with charming detail, this old-fashioned and well-published story... will delight children who are of an age to relish secret friends and a cosy world in miniature'; the Financial Times said: 'Bearn is a fine writer and her tale... is a gently humorous page-turner full of little details... Highly recommended'; Writeaway.org said: 'The illustrations are superb...'; The Times said: 'Bearn's style is as crisp and warm as a home-baked biscuit.'"

About the Author

Emily Bearn Emily Bearn was born in London, and has been a journalist since the age of 20 when she joined the staff of Harpers & Queen magazine. She has subsequently worked for The Times and the Sunday Telegraph before becoming a freelance in 2005 following the birth of her daughter. The idea for the Tumtum and Nutmeg books was sparked one evening when, while feeding her baby in the kitchen, she saw two tiny mice scuttling across the floor, then disappearing behind the skirting next to the cooker. She started to wonder what sort of life the mice led behind the skirting board, and so Tumtum and Nutmeg came to life. She and her daughter live in Hammersmith, and still share their house with two (very helpful) mice.

This series of books is a delight for little girls. Old-fashioned and endearing, perfect for age 6 and beyond. My 8 year old daughter has every book and can't wait for the new issue at Christmas.
