Tumtum & Nutmeg: adventures beyond Nutmouse Hall

I read this when real life was angry, full of hurt and changing quickly. It was the perfect thing for that, like the world was black and this book poured white paint into it and made it actually a not at all overwhelming shade of blue. Certainly for small people but a sweet and simple read for adults who don't think it's beneath them to read books that are certainly for small people. I'm going to read it again, this time to my six-year-old.

Aug 12, Miri rated it it was ok Shelves: middle-grade. Well-written, good adventure story, likable characters, but I couldn't believe this was first published in and not The antiquated gender roles were ridiculously pervasive, almost as though the author female; ugh had gone through a Patriarchy Checklist in creating her characters.

Adventures Beyond Nutmouse Hall (Tumtum and Nutmeg Series)

Fun and cute, but not worth reading the rest of the series, nor will I be recommending it to any children I know until they're old enough to know why the gender roles are stupid.

I loved the bit about the two mice building their great hall, and adopting the two human children who are pretty much left to their own devices by their well-meaning but oblivious inventor father. But then Aunt Ivy showed up and spoiled things. There was an increasing smell of Roald Dahl's unpleasant aunts from James and the Giant Peach about her, and the plot just went completely off at I was hoping for a cosy bedtime read along the lines of The Wind in the Willows , and the first part of it is.

There was an increasing smell of Roald Dahl's unpleasant aunts from James and the Giant Peach about her, and the plot just went completely off at a tangent from there. I found the battle rather disappointing and the ending rushed. I had also hoped for better illustrations than we are offered. Also, and this is entirely personal, but--I found "Tum-tum" as a supposed endearment "because he had such a large one" very off-putting. I don't think I can love an author who thinks that's cute, but then I was given "cute" fat-girl nicknames myself as a child and know how much they hurt.

I see it's the first in yet another series. I wonder if it gets better? View 1 comment. Jul 24, Amy Meyers rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this sweet children's story. I listened to the audio version, which is very well done, but I was a bit annoyed at how soft it was--I could only hear it with a speaker connected. My daughter recently picked up the actual books and started reading them, and loved them, and she read a section to me, in which I was impressed with some of the vocabulary.

I was tempted to give it 5 stars, but I wasn't entirely happy with the aunt theme, and scaring her to death. She deserved it, but I really enjoyed this sweet children's story. She deserved it, but it gave it an almost creepy cartoony feel at times, like Roald Dahl; another Roald Dahl-type issue would be that adults in the story are either fools or villains.

But this book overall and in general would NOT be compared to Dahl's stories, rather contrasted. It has an old-fashioned feel, perhaps like Nesbit? I think the aunt cursed at the end. I'm going to have to black that out in the book, if so. It seems British authors are more careless about that kind of thing. Overall, very nice, however, and I think I'll get the rest of the series for my younger kids if they continue liking it.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is a hard one for me to rate. My kids my 5 year old son in particular loved it but it was just okay for me. I loved the first half when TumTum and Nutmeg adopted the human kids. So sweet and fun! But the second half when Aunt Ivy comes, TumTum is out of commission, and Nutmeg summons a mouse general who summons a mouse army to literally battle Aunt Ivy was kind of weird for me.

It went from sweet to very battled-oriented and not really about TumTum and Nutmeg at all. It just fell flat for me. Probably not a huge deal for some people but it was for me as my kids are young 3 and 5. I might read another of these because it did keep my kids on the edge of their seats but only if I pre-read it first. Oct 21, R. Banks rated it really liked it.

I remember it quite fondly. I loved these books when I was younger, but later, I could never remember the name of the series until I came across the book in a library bookstore and instantly recognized it.

I would highly recommend it to children. Jan 17, Janae rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens-lit.

Very cute little chapter book. Read it to my 5 yr old and she actually paid attention.

Thanks for signing up!

We'll be reading another. Jul 03, Elaine rated it it was amazing.

It was so funny and the girls and I had a great time reading it. I wish Tumtum and Nutmeg lived in our house and took care of us! I highly recommend this book.

Although we haven't finished it yet, I was a little surprised at how well she was listening and following the story, particularly because of the accent of the narrator and some of the terms that were more British than American, but perhaps more so I actually got this audiobook through Audible rather than the mp3 version through the library Overdrive app.

    Although we haven't finished it yet, I was a little surprised at how well she was listening and following the story, particularly because of the accent of the narrator and some of the terms that were more British than American, but perhaps more so because young kids like looking at pictures as the story goes along rather than listening to chapter books. I may look for more in this series through the library, as they seem a bit pricey on Audible for such short listens. Jun 27, Leneigh rated it it was amazing. I highly recommend this book to read to children. High quality descriptive writing and story telling.

    Amazing hilarious characters and world. My kids 5 and 7 were completely engaged in the story and howled with laughter.
