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 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.'

This is a lovely English story about two mice and their adventures. The description is robust and the language rich. A very well written book with delightful characters and an exciting story. A breath of fresh air in this time of formulaic fiction.
