"No Time Like Show Time: A Hermux Tantamoq Adventure by Michael Hoeye heralds the return of the watchmaking mouse from Time Stops for No Mouse and The Sands of Time.

Trouble is brewing at the Varmint Theater! Before he knows it, watchmaker mouse Hermux Tantamoq finds himself not only hired to track down a mysterious blackmailer, but roped into designing the set for an upcoming show. Hermux is on the case--and busy backstage--but as he enters the chaotic world of the theater he's lost in a whirlwind of distractions: an accidental foray into "reality theater," film director Brinx Lotelle's shameless interest in Hermux's friend Linka, beauty queen Tucka Mertslin's latest shenanigans, mysterious newcomer Corpius Crounce, and a very strange parrot.
When Hermux receives a threatening message, he realizes it's up to him to save the day, save the theater, protect his new friends and get the girl--a lot for one mouse to handle, even with a surprisingly talented pet ladybug in tow!
Rich descriptions and snappy, witty dialogue bring Pinchester to life in this highly-anticipated third installment of Hermux's adventures.

About the Author
Michael Hoeye initially self-published the first two books in this series (both Book Sense 76 Top Ten books). The New York Times Book Review said of the first installment, "It's easy to see why [Time Stops for No Mouse] was a cult hit before it attracted the attention of major publishers. It is a terrific adventure--a love story wrapped in a meticulously plotted thriller--with an endearing hero."
