Tumtum and Nutmeg The Rose Cottage Tales by Emily Bearn illustrated by Nick Price*

Three delightful stories featuring Tumtum and Nutmeg, mice who live with two children and their father in Rose Cottage.  Although small, the mice help the children, Arthur and Lucy, receive the presents they have desired for two years for Christmas.  When the children travel to shore with Arthur and Lucy, they restore a seaside mouse's stolen home furnishing and offer the children an adventure when they elicit their help.  Lastly, the children help the mice capture some villain mice who ransack a local bakery.
The mice communicate to the children by notes and do not reveal that they are mice.
Three exciting adventures.  A perfect fantasy for families who not enjoy the magic/witch/wizard element in a lot of fantasies.
*Highly recommend.
-Borrowed from the library.
