Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mild-mannered watchmaker Hermux Tantamoq is up to his ears in trouble again. All of Pinchester is talking about his friend Mirrin Stentrill's paintings, which are monumental portraits of cats! After all, cats are not a popular topic in a city of rodents — and everyone knows they never really existed. Then a mysterious old chipmunk appears in Hermux's shop with what he claims is a map of the royal library of a prehistoric kingdom of cats. Before long Hermux is hot on a trail of treachery and deceit, leading all the way from Pinchester to an ancient tomb that lies buried in...The Sands of Time!

Review:

"Hoeye's galloping plot, evocative descriptions and exuberantly sophisticated wit keep the pages rapidly turning." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Review:

"Hoeye's tale boasts the kind of minutely detailed world into which kids (and adults) can't wait to immerse themselves." Child Magazine (A Best Book of 2001 Pick)

Review:

"The watchmaker is an endearing hero....The 80 short chapters move briskly and have a satisfying conclusion that clearly paves the way for future adventures." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Beloved mouse and watchmaker Hermux Tantamoq is up to his furry ears in trouble again as he tries to follow a trail of treachery and deceit to prove that a kingdom of cats really once existed.

Synopsis:

In this sequel to Time Stops for No Mouse, amateur detective and mouse Hermux Tantamoq gets caught up in another amazing adventure. Here Hermux and his friends investigate whether cats, long-believed to be only mythical figures by the rodent residents of Pinchester, really do exist.

About the Author

Michael Hoeye first came to Oregon in 1970 to homestead a piece of property in the Coastal Range. After 5 years, he moved to New York where he found city life to be even harder than homesteading. In 1991, he returned to Oregon to marry his sweetheart, Martha Banyas. The Sands of Time is his second Hermux Tantamoq Adventure.
