Summary

'Dear Father Christmas, I'm very sorry that you couldn't come last year because the chimney was bricked up. We asked Pa to unblock it, so you could get down this time, but he said he couldn't because the wind would come in and we'd all be very cold.'

Christmas is nearing, and for two little mice called Tumtum and Nutmeg, it is a very busy time of year. There are cakes to bake and hams to glaze, and ants to sugar. But when the mice discover that Arthur and Lucy may not be getting any presents this year, they set out to find Baron Toymouse to see if he can help. They have heard that the Baron is a crotchety old mouse, but surely he wouldn't let children go without presents at Christmas time....

Holiday Magic

This was one of the few holiday reads I read for 2017. It was everything I needed at the time, a bit of magic and whimsy. I had just finished rereading Big Little Lies,and while overall it ends on a good note, I is a bit heartbreaking.

I love that Nutmeg is such a clever character and that Tumtum is so supportive. Together they are perfectly charming.

Excellent narration of a well-written, engrossing story!

We love TumTum and Nutmeg and Bill Wallis only added to the fun with his varied and exciting narration. Highly recommend!!!

Nice story with a warm ending

Lovely story. Some fighting going on so boys would like it. A warm ending.

The Christmas recipes at the end are a nice touch!
