It’s Christmastime and the loveable characters Tumtum and Nutmeg are back for a new set of adventures. When they hear bad news about Christmas they set off for the Toy Kingdom to make sure that everyone gets the happy Christmas they deserve. But a visit to Baron Toymouse goes horribly wrong. Tumtum and Nutmeg are chased by a terrifying pack of clockwork mice and Tumtum is captured by a lasso made of strawberry licorice! Luckily, all ends happily for the two daring little mice and their friends.
If you’ve not met Tumtum and his wife Nutmeg yet, then your kids aged 6+ are seriously missing out. Tumtum and Nutmeg live in Nutmouse Hall, which is under the stairs at Rose Cottage. But, no one knows they’re there with the exception of the little children who live in terror of their father, Mr Mildew.
Click here for some tasty recipes that Nutmeg can't live without, from Fireside Flapjacks to Cinnamon Toast - Delicious and perfect for children to try their hand at cooking under the watchful eye of a grown-up!.
Tumtum and Nutmeg: A Christmas Adventure by Emily Bearn
It is winter at Rose cottage and Christmas is fast approaching. But for Arthur and Lucy Mildew they hold out little hope of receiving any presents. But Tumtum and Nutmeg have other ideas. Setting out for the house of Mr Toymouse, Tumtum and Nutmeg hope that he can spare a toy car and a box of magic tricks for Arthur and Lucy. But the crotchety old Toymouse who hoardes his wonderful collection of toys has other ideas, and when the Nutmouses appear at his front door they are in for a nasty surprise. Once again, General Marchmouse and his brother officers must ride to the rescue and save the day. But can they get the Nutmouses out of this tight scrape and will Arthur and Lucy get their presents in time for Chrismas morning? Find out as Emily Bearn serves up a delightful festive treat.
