It’s The Borrowers meets The Wind in the Willows. Enter the world of Tumtum and Nutmeg for a wonderfully enchanting story full of warmth and humour. 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. The General soon spies an island in the distance that he is determined to explore – and fiddlesticks to anyone who disagrees! But once ashore the mice soon find that they are not the only ones to have discovered the island . . .
Tumtum and Nutmeg: The Pirates’ Treasure is a miniature masterpiece that will be loved by generations to come. Emily Bearn’s distinctive, classic writing style and Nick Price’s delightful illustrations combine to make this series a future classic. The Times said: ‘Bearn’s style is as crisp and warm as a home-baked biscuit.’
