    Default Trying to find a childhood book

    I know this a long shot but there was this book in the early 90's about a society of little people that lived in a forest or a tree or something, there wasn't much of a story, it just showed all the different parts of their world and lives (I think…)
    I swear it was called The Trumpkins or The Tumpkins or something starting with T at least.
    Does anyone have any idea what I'm talking about? I remember loving the detailed illustrations and would love to track down a copy one day just for the nostalgia.
    @shani2, it was in our primary school library!

    Ooh thank you for that, it's not the one I'm thinking of but one of the images on that google search reminded me of a bunch of other children's books I'd totally forgotten about! (The Martha B Rabbit books by Shirley Barber)

    For some reason that just popped into my mind immediately. Just goes to show I don't have a 6th sense

    After my initial post I checked the date of publication and it was 2007 oops!

    Good luck hope someone here can help
