Book Description

Sep 2004 Hermux Tantamoq Adventures
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!

Great 3rd adventure. It's exciting, full of mystery and unpredictable twists. Large age range - younger ones may need you to read with them though, as text is fairly small.

5.0 out of 5 stars exciting,dramatic and romantic 13 Sep 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on
First things first, this book certaintaly mesures up to its sequels.So don't be worried about that.In the book Hermux's shyness for telling Linka his feelings about her is a conflict, especially since another mouse is making the move on Linka.Tucka has set her sights on the Varimount theater. Hurmux's is working against her with a whole new cast of characters. All in all, you should read this book. Trust me,it won't let you down.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Adventures of Hermux Tantamoq 5 April 2005
By Chrestomanci - Published on
'No Time Like Show Time' is the third adventure of watchmaker and mouse, Hermux Tantamoq. Hermux is called to the Varmint Theatre (to install alarm clocks in the dressing rooms), but soon finds himself roped into designing the stage set and solving a baffling murder mystery.

As in previous volumes, the plot is engaging and the writing witty. Favourite characters from the first two books, (like aviatrix Linka Perflinger and beauty-product megalomaniac Tucka Mertslin), make a welcome return - and we meet a whole cast of colourful newcomers: Fluster Varmint the theatre manager, Nurella Pinch a mysterious aging film star, and a very peculiar ventriloquist. Hermux's pet ladybug, Terfle, also takes a starring role in the plot - and the touching relationship between mouse and bug is as charming as always.

This is perhaps my favourite book of the three - but it also has to be said that some of the plotlines might perhaps be rather 'grown-up' for the very youngest: murder, love triangles, an unwed pregnancy, an abandoned single parent ... all softened under mouse-fur and whiskers, but there none-the-less. Such themes are commonplace in contemporary teen fiction, but surprising in anthropomorphic bedtime stories for the under nines - and at times seemed a little surreal. In all probability it'll go over the heads of most youngsters, and it didn't bother me - but some parents might want to read the story through first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 23 May 2005
By G. Tenison - Published on
First of all, this is a great series and if you haven't read the first two books then go do it now! No Time Like Show Time was just as suspenseful and cool as the other books and I hope the next book comes out soon! In case you're wondering what it's about, it is set in the world of mice, rats, and other like creatures with the main character a mouse watchmaker named Hermux Tantamoq, who has an otherwise quiet life until he meets Linka Perflinger in the first book, who becomes his new love interest and somehow gets him involved in all sorts of thrilling adventures throughout the first and second books. Besides a new mysterious plot with each book, there is also a little romance for the teen readers, but it is tastefully done and there is nothing, in my opinion, overly romantic. Anyway, it's a great book and series and I would really recommend that you consider buying it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reminiscent of E. B White and A. A. Milne 15 April 2005
By Bill's Best Books - Published on
Hermux Tantamoq returns to solve another mystery, this time involving the irascible showman Fluster Varmint. Fans of this mouse detective will find NTLST to be the best to date, with healthy does of slapstick mixed with sly wit. (M) Hoeye's style and humor are reminiscent of E. B White and A. A. Milne.
