Why I liked this title:

This is a story about mice, but be warned: it is not for the faint of heart! Hermux Tantamoq is a mouse who lives a very quiet life. He makes and repairs watches, takes care of his pet ladybug Terfel, and tries to avoid conflict of all kinds-- until the day the beautiful Linka Perflinker walks into his shop with an urgent request for a watch repair. Linka is everything Hermux wishes he were-- adventurous, courageous, and full of life. When Linka fails to return to pick up the watch she needed so badly, Hermux has the feeling that something is wrong, and he decides to investigate. What he finds is much more than he bargained for: spies, criminals, thieves kidnappers-- and murderers.
