A novel by

 
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.

Tumtum and Nutmeg are enjoying a quiet life in Nutmouse Hall, when General Marchmouse comes to stay. The General has a new pogo stick and is looking for adventure. Recklessly, he bounces out of Nutmouse Hall and into Rose Cottage - the home of the Mildews. He takes Lucy's doll's house under siege with the help of some toy soldiers and takes a ride on Arthur's train set. He makes a terrible mess and Lucy and Arthur think a bad fairy has come...

Tumtum and Nutmeg have to take the General under house arrest to stop his bad behaviour, but the General plots his escape. Events spiral and the General is taken by Arthur and Lucy and imprisoned in their school! General Marchmouses's reputation as an officer and a gentlemouse is about to change!

Tumtum and Nutmeg: The Great Escape is a miniature masterpiece that will be loved by generations to come. Emily Bearn's distinctive, classic writing style makes this series a future classic.

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.
