Review: Tumtum and Nutmeg: A circus Adventure by Emily Bearn

I’m a big fan of the Tumtum and Nutmeg stories. They always remind me of Mary Norton’s The Borrowers, with the two little mice scurrying secretly around the human’s house, helping the children when possible and trying to avoid being seen. So I was excited to read their latest adventure.

We find Nutmeg and Tumtum, the two little mice who live in Nutmouse Hall, hoping for a nice, uneventful birthday celebration with their friend, General Marchmouse, and canny readers will sense impending adventure as the General arrives at Rose Cottage and discovers a circus in the kitchen. Overwhelmed by curiosity, he cannot help but investigate the big top tent and then the glorious, red circus bus. Tumtum and Nutmeg await his arrival at the party to no avail, for of course the General has gone for a little jaunt in the bus and lands himself in all sorts of trouble!
