Tumtum and Nutmeg is the first of a series of children's books by author Emily Bearn. The book is about Mr and Mrs Nutmouse who live in Nutmouse Hall, situated within the broom cupboard of Rose Cottage. Tumtum and Nutmeg have a wonderful life but the children who live in Rose Cottage, Arthur and Lucy, are miserable. So, one day Tumtum and Nutmeg decide to cheer them up.

Bill Wallis' narration makes this one of those books you could happily fall asleep to. His voice just washes over you like a gently babbling brook and lulls you into a super relaxed state. He has a lovely west country lilt which just suits these two little mice and it doesn't take long to build a real rapport with the story. Such a shame other narrators don't have these skills.
Tumtum and Nutmeg falls into that category of stories about animals who have human qualities, so fits well with Mouse and Mole (Joyce Dunbar). Is it on a par with Pooh? I'm not sure.
They're all good. Very sensitively delivered.
I suppose so, but it's just as well rationed out chapter by chapter.
