    Story
    "A real gem"
    What made the experience of listening to Tumtum and Nutmeg the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Tumtum and Nutmeg to, and why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Bill Wallis – was your favourite?

    They're all good. Very sensitively delivered.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I suppose so, but it's just as well rationed out chapter by chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    Hooray! :-)

    Couldn't wait to hear the end! My daughter and I listened to it all in one day. The reader makes the story come to life.

    "Beautifully written and performed!"

    I feel in love with the characters from the very first chapter. The narrator performs the story so well... it is captivating. I would recommend this book to anyone, young and old, who loves a heart warming tale.

    Story
    "A Delightful New Series"
    What did you love best about Tumtum and Nutmeg?

    They are so cute and real..Nutmeg off in the kitchen and bustling round, and Tum Tum off in the library reading (and their nicknames for each other. I especially like the reference of Tum Tum's "tum"

    The Story was a page turner but what surprised me is that I liked so much the terrible Aunty! She made me giggle a lot. It could have been horrifying (and was a bit) but she is so over the top you end of loving to hate her!

    This will be a book fun to read over again


    What other book might you compare Tumtum and Nutmeg to and why?

    I dislike comparing books; apples are apples and oranges are oranges. But if you like anthropomorphic stories, you would probably like "The Wind in the Willows", which of course IS a classic, but for much more distant generation.


    Have you listened to any of Bill Wallis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't but I quite like his dialect and think it suits the story to a T.
