Hermux Tantamoq è un topo per bene, che conduce una vita tranquilla e ordinata. Quando torna a casa dopo una giornata di lavoro nella sua bottega di orologiaio, si mette comodo e inizia a sfogliare il giornale. Un giorno però Hermux trova nel giornale la fotografia di una cliente che al mattino gli ha portato a riparare un orologio da polso, una topolina dinamica e sbarazzina che non era più riuscito a levarsi dalla testa. La signorina Perflinger nella foto del giornale era ritratta accanto a un aeroplano su una pista di atterraggio in mezzo alla giungla. Hermux non vede l'ora di rivederla. Chissà quando verrà a ritirare l'orologio...

Oh. My. God. Words cannot describe how much I loved this book. Which is kind of pathetic, since I'm a writer. ;-P And for someone who doesn't read mysteries, if you can get me interested in one, you know it's good! Michael Hoeye's work is an example of world-building at its best. In a realm like-our- Leggi tutto
Time Stops for No Mouse is one of those books which is best read with no expectations, I think. Going by the summary, I'd expected a cutesy fantasy novel about animals. While these elements are definitely present, there's also a whole world and a compelling mystery within the story which isn't quite Leggi tutto
Ένα καλοδουλεμένο τρυφερό παραμυθάκι για όλες τις ηλικίες!!!
It’s difficult to write a positive review about a book that had me thinking about stopping through the entire first half. Most of my dislike focused on the too-cute outlandish names and the too-detailed narratives of the main character’s daily routine. However, about halfway through I got intereste Leggi tutto
This is a fabulous series for young readers. I read them as an adult, but thoroughly enjoyed the humor and the detail put into these books. A great read alound series. The main character is Hermux Tantamoq, a watchmaker, who gets sucked into these fantastic adventures along with his lady mouse love
A nice read, a pretty complex mystery for what is actually a children’s book, so much so, I did get confused at times. It’s the first in a series but I think I’ll just stick with this read.
The cover of this book caught my eye from the very first moment I laid my eyes on it. For me the cover is selling as much as the resume on the back. And I did bring this book and the two others in the serie with me home from the library. It is now three years since I read the book, and I've grown old Leggi tutto
I loved this series when I was young, and recently picked it up again to see how it held up as an adult reader. I continue to love Hermux Tantamoq and the charming world that he lives in, plus I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery and adventure of the story. Recommended for mature middle grade readers -- Leggi tutto
Our local library had a popup book sale a few weeks ago, and I picked this up because it was not like anything else there. It's really quite a good little mystery that didn't end the way I expected it to. It's also a fantasy in that all the characters are small animals - who live very human lives. B Leggi tutto
This is a nice, quirky story about a mouse who gets in over his head in an espionage plot. It wasn’t my favourite book but others would enjoy it.
