Daring military campaigns! Terrifying pirate encounters! Inspiring prisoner rescues! These are only a few of the exploits contained in Tumtum & Nutmeg: Adventures Beyond Nutmouse Hall by Emily Bearn. From this you might get the idea that Nutmeg and Tumtum are daring thrill seekers. However, you couldn’t be further from the truth. They are just two mice who wish to live a quiet existence in their comfortably furnished house. Instead, mouse-sized adventure seems to follow them wherever they go. If you are a fan of the Littles, the Borrowers, Beatrix Potter’s Tale of Two Bad Mice, and all things small, this book is for you.
