The Lovereading4Kids comment

The enchanting and delightful mice Tumtum and Nutmeg are back for a third adventure. This time the two home lovers are off on a camping trip but soon things begin to go very wrong as they get swept down the river in a toy boat and find themselves exploring an island which is already occupied by some other, unexpected invaders…The domestic charm of the two previous titles prevails, even as the mice take on a more dramatic adventure.

Synopsis

Tumtum and Nutmeg: Pirates' Treasure by Emily Bearn

In the broom cupboard of a Rose Cottage, stands a house fit for a mouse - well, two mice actually. The house belongs to Mr and Mrs Nutmouse. When General Marchmouse unexpectedly joins the Nutmouses on a camping trip things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Before they know it, the mice are whisked downstream on Arthur's toy boat Bluebottle.

Highly recommended' - Writeaway.org said: 'The illustrations are superb...'

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.
