Hermux Tantamoq—watchmaker, cheese connoisseur, sometime detective, mouse—is finally getting married to the adorable daredevil and aviatrix Linka Perflinger, in this fourth book in the series for readers 9 and up that began with Time Stops for No Mouse. But sinister things are afoot in Thorny End: a body washes up on shore, a strange new breed of killer bees is on the loose, and someone is up to no good in the lab on Jeckel Island. Hermux sets out to find the missing link between these odd happenings—and it turns out to be a personal one.
"Watch out, Stuart Little, you have a literary rival.... This pleasurably anthropomorphic story has bags of charm [and] a zesty plot."—Guardian (London)
