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.

'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.

After reading "Time Waits For No Mouse" my 10-year-old son asked me to get all the other books in this series, so I did. He absolutely loved this book, the story is something really different and the characters drew him in. He couldn't stop raving about it. What a charming series!

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!

Format: Hardcover
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.

A Kid's Review on September 22, 2007
Format: Hardcover
No Time Like Show Time is a story about a young mouse who is always trying to help the community whether they like it or not. The plot has many twists and turns with lots of characters that come into the story with different identities. A young mouse, Hermux Tantamoq is a watchmaker who has a knack for solving mysteries. In this story Hermux helps Fluster Varmint, a famous director and the owner of the Varmint Variety Theater. The theater is in trouble and brings a whole new twist to Hermux's life. The character involved in the troubles of the theater is Dr. Mennus a mole who ruins the young and beautiful Nurella Pinch's acting career and starts the difficulty for the theater years later.

Fluster Varmint's chain of bad events begins when his wife dies shortly after birth of their daughter Beulith. A lot of the story revolves around Beulith and the theater because they are the most important things in Varmint's life. The theater is the only place that Beulith Varmint knows because she grew up around the stage of Varmint Variety Theater.

The other books in this series are Time Stop for No Mouse and The Sands of Time. In the series they all start the same way. Hermux never goes out to find the adventures the adventures always find him in one way or other, leading him into a world he would have never known existed. The first book really starts to explain Hermux life of solving mysteries. I like his writing because the chapters are short so it's easier to read for long periods of time. It's very hard to stop reading this book because it's full of excitement. I liked this book because there is never dull part of the book and the plot never stops. This book is full of suspense and always keeps you guessing.
