Synopsis

Tumtum and Nutmeg: The Great Escape by Emily Bearn

In the broom cupboard of a small dwelling called Rose Cottage, stands a house fit for a mouse - well, two mice actually. The house belongs to Mr and Mrs Nutmouse, or Tumtum and Nutmeg as they affectionately call each other. Tumtum and Nutmeg are enjoying a quiet life in Nutmouse Hall, when General Marchmouse comes to stay.

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 then worked for a year as a diary reporter on The Times, before becoming a commissioning editor, and subsequently a senior interviewer, on the Sunday Telegraph. She became freelance in 2005 following the birth of her daughter, Freya.

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 slowly the plot for the first Tumtum and Nutmeg book came to life.

She and her daughter live in Hammersmith, and still share their house with two (very helpful) mice.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
