About this product
- DescriptionIt'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. GOLD! Rare, priceless, beautiful gold! And it's hidden right here under the floorboards of Rose Cottage! Some unwanted guests have made their home under the sink at Rose Cottage and they are up to good - but why? Tumtum and Nutmeg must get to the bottom of this mystery quickly, and, with any luck, they might be able to solve Arthur and Lucy's big problem too. Tumtum and Nutmeg: Trouble at Rose 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.'
- Author BiographyEmily 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.
