Author of the delightful Tumtum and Nutmeg series, Emily Bearn, reviews a selection of illustrated children’s books…
Emily Bearn was born in London, and has been a journalist since the age of 20 when she joined the staff of Harpers & Queen magazine. She then worked on The Times and the Sunday Telegraph, before writing her first children’s book, Tumtum and Nutmeg (Egmont, £5.99 PB), about two married mice living in a stately home within a cottage broom cupboard. Emily lives in London with her daughter, Freya.
The third Tumtum and Nutmeg book, The Pirate’s Treasure, will be published in April ‘09.
