Enjoyable!

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.

Delightful! Shared with my 7 yr old

My son and I laughed aloud as the story unfolded. Great performance and story. Will be looking for other stories in the series

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! :-)
