Time Stops for No Mouse

Michael Hoeye. Putnam Publishing Group, $14.99 (256pp) ISBN 978-0-399-23878-9

Michael Hoeye's Hermux Tantamoq Adventure series is now being published by Putnam. The first title, Time Stops for No Mouse, introduced the watchmaking mouse, Hermux Tantamoq, his pet ladybug, Terfle, and his crush, aviatrix Ms. Linka Perflinger. In the second episode, The Sands of Time, Mayor Hooster Pinkwiggin vows to close Mirrin Stentrill's art exhibit when he learns it features felines-a taboo subject in the rodent town of Pinchester. PW said the author's ""galloping plot, evocative descriptions and exuberantly sophisticated wit keep the pages rapidly turning.""
