By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Tumtum and Nutmeg: Adventures Beyond Rose Cottage

Tumtum and Nutmeg: Adventures Beyond Nutmouse Hall - Emily Bearn, Nick Price

I was hoping that these stories would be descendants of Jill Barklem’s Brambly Hedge books. They’re not exactly, but they’re great fun! More like the Borrowers, with a little Brambly Hedge thrown in, they follow the adventures of Tumtum and Nutmeg, two married mice who live in Nutmouse Hall, in the broom cupboard of Rose Cottage. Any imaginative child ought to like these ones.
