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. In a starred review of Sands, PW wrote, "the galloping plot, evocative descriptions and exuberantly sophisticated wit keep the pages turning." Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Gr 5-8-This third title featuring Hermux Tantamoq, a humble watchmaker turned detective, is just as wonderful as the first two. The likable mouse once again finds himself at the center of a mystery when a famous stage director, Fluster Varmint, hires him to find out who is sending him threatening letters. Tension continues to grow, and readers stay just one step ahead of Hermux as he uncovers intrigues and faces danger. Several characters return from the previous books, including Linka Perflinger, daring aviatrix and Hermux's love interest, and Tucka Mertslin, Hermux's detested neighbor and owner of a large cosmetics company. Hoeye pays minute attention to detail, creating a vivid setting where mice, moles, chipmunks, and rats go about their day-to-day lives. Perfect for sharing aloud, this fast-paced tale will keep youngsters enthralled until the thrilling climax. Children who have not read the other novels will definitely ask for them after finishing this one so that they can return to Hermux's world of celery donuts, clocks that keep perfect time, and villains who wear polka-dot lipstick.-Tasha Saecker, Caestecker Public Library, Green Lake, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
