It's Probably Going to be Famous

Like most of my favorites, I had no idea that this would be a good book. I just read it. By the time I was two pages into it, I knew that this wasn't going to be an ordinary book.Pretty much, the main story line goes like this: There is a city, called Pinchester, where the population consists of mice, rats, voles, chipmunks, squirrels...(you get the idea) and one of them is named Hermux Tantamoq. He is a watchmaker mouse and has a pretty much ordinary life, until one day, when Hermux is visited by Miss Perflinger, a young female mouse. She gives him a really torn up watch and her business card, which reads, "Ms. Linka Perflinger, Adventuress, Daredevil and Aviatrix, Bold Feats of Nerve and Verve, On Land and In the Air, Reasonable Rates, #3 Pickdorndle Lane, Pinchester." She tells him that the watch must keep perfect time. Even a second, she says, could mean the difference between life and death.That is the point where I couldn't stop reading, and read it (only stopping for homework, eating, etc) til the end. I was so sad that it ended that I had to get the sequel, which I am working on right now.I recommend the book for anyone 7 - adult. I loved it because of Michael Hoeye's touch. Some authors just give it their "touch" like Eva Ibbotson, Eoin Colfer, Roald Dahl, etc and Michael Hoeye fits right in.

You Gotta Read It!!!

Michael Hoeye is an outstandingly clever writer. The way he wrote "Time Stops for No Mouse" made me feel like it was a real adventure happening right now in 2002. It was soooooooo realistic, clever, hilarious and exciting that I could not put it down. Even my Mom liked it, and she's a tough critic. The author is so good at describing the characters that I felt like I knew them. It is CLEARLY one of the best books I have ever read! I can't wait to read the next one.

A great new book!

Hermux Tantamoq is just your normal average everyday mouse. That is until the day Ms. Linka Perflinger comes rushing into his house, wanting her watch repaired ASAP. Hermux, sensing her worry and also being rather attracted to this young mouse, fixes it quickly and waits for her the next day to come it. Unfortunatly he never shows up. Days later a rather nasty looking rat comes up to his shop and askes for Ms. Perfllinger's watch. Hermux, being smart, refuses to give it to him and follows him to Ms. Perfllinger's house. WHen he get's there he's shocked to see what's going on. He finds himself drawn into a mystery so complex that he dosen't know who to trust or what to do. All he knows is he has to solve it quick before Ms. Perfllinger and possibly himself meets a dredful fate.I found this book to be very entertaining and funny. I've been a fan of all animal worlds since I first read the Redwall series and this book dose not dissapoint me. The mystery was exciting and hard to solve. There's a surprise near the end that I Never saw coming. If you're a fan of mystery, suspence, and worlds where animals take the place of humans, read this book! I would reccomend it to anyone. This is a book for everyone. There's also another book in the series coming out in September that I can't wait for. Happy Reading!

Great for all ages!

I'm a teacher who discovered this book during my Christmas vacation last year. I fell in love with the characters and knew I had to share it with my students. (I teach 7th & 8th graders.) My kids and I read the story together and they LOVED it. The action is well-paced and makes you want to keep reading. If you are a teacher, I highly recommend sharing this novel with your kids. And if your students are younger--read it aloud to them! I had my kids design game boards based on the characters and the events in the book. Their projects were a huge success because they were so motivated by the interesting plot and characters. There are some fantastic twists and turns to keep the reader intrigued. The sequal to this book is due out this fall and my 7th graders are begging me to "let" us read it in 8th grade next year. I highly recommend this book for ALL ages! You won't be disappointed.


Are you looking for a great read aloud? This book is perfect! It has unique and interesting characters, a complex and challenging plot and plenty of suspense and humor. My class of middle school students loved it. We made Tucka Mertslin hats and daily predictions of what would happen next. Get this book before your students do and keep them on the edge of their seats.
