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 leaving the confines of Nutmouse Hall and voyaging on their most challenging adventure yet...at the seaside! Arthur and Lucy are going to stay with their Uncle, and Nutmeg is determined to keep an eye on the children while they are away. But of course they won't be alone as General Marchmouse decides to join the fun. And soon The General gets his wish as the mice find that their new friend, Lord Seamouse, needs their help. Together they must set out on an adventure to regain his lost treasure and stop his enemy, Purple Claw, from getting to it first.
Tumtum and Nutmeg: A Seaside Adventure 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.'
