Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his third adventure, watchmaker Hermux Tantamoq is not only hired to track down a mysterious blackmailer, but also roped into designing the set for an upcoming show at the Varmint Theater.

Review:

"[D]elightful images....[F]ans of the series will find satisfaction and amusement in this stage-struck mystery, as well as delight in the slow unraveling of the clues through chance and dogged detective work." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Perfect for sharing aloud, this fast-paced tale will keep youngsters enthralled until the thrilling climax." School Library Journal

Review:

"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. Hermux must contend with the villainous Tucka Mertslin as she forms a partnership with jewel thief Corpius Crounce, conspiring to ruin the Varmint Variety Theater." Publishers Weekly, Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

All seems well in the city on Pinchester, but trouble is brewing at the Varmint Theater. Before he knows it, Hermux is hired not only to investigate a mysterious blackmailer, but to design the set for an upcoming show. As Hermux enters the dizzying world of the theater he finds himself in a whirlwind of distractions--among them an accidental foray into reality theater; trying to fight off sexy film director Brinx Lotelle's shameless interest in Hermux's girlfriend Linka; coping with cosmetic queen Tucka Mertslin's latest takeover schemes; and learning the mysterious ways of the eccentric theater people. Before long, Hermux is receiving threatening messages, and life at the theater is getting more and more dangerous. It's up to Hermux 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!

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."
