Good Reading for Christmas by Virginia Ironside...

'I’m definitely giving my goddaughter the latest in her favourite series, Tumtum and Nutmeg: A Circus Adventure by Emily Bearn. I picked up the first book and read the entire thing. The can’t-put-it-down, thrilling adventures of two small mice are ideal for anyone from six upwards.’

The Lovereading Comment:

Timeless, charming, gentle and yet wonderfully exciting the author has delivered yet another stirring treat for those who have already discovered the world of Tumtum and Nutmeg and for those who haven't yet discovered the compelling and adorable world of these wonderful mice then do whet your appetite now by reading the pre-publication extract available exclusively on Lovereading4kids. Think Beatrix Potter or Brambly Hedge crossed with The Borrowers except it's even better.

Synopsis

About the Author

Emily Bearn

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 then worked for a year as a diary reporter on The Times, before becoming a commissioning editor, and subsequently a senior interviewer, on the Sunday Telegraph. She became freelance in 2005 following the birth of her daughter, Freya.

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 slowly the plot for the first Tumtum and Nutmeg book came to life.

She and her daughter live in Hammersmith, and still share their house with two (very helpful) mice.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
