I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on THE MOUSE WATCH UNDERWATER by J. J. Gilbert Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!
In this action-packed sequel to The Mouse Watch, a team of elite crime-fighting mice must go where no mouse has gone before – the depths of the ocean!
For Fans of Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers
Six months into their Mouse Watch training, Bernie and Jarvis are getting along like cheese and crackers! Less exciting: having already completed their first successful mission, it’s now back to basic training.
But more pressing matters are at hand (or rather, at paw). The remains of the S.S. Moon, a long-lost spy vessel, have been found. Onboard the ship is a legendary map, and the transmission says that it leads to an energy source that could save—or destroy— the planet. The Mouse Watch must get to it before it falls into the clutches of their nemesis, R.A.T.S!
Bernie and Jarvis suit up—in scuba suits, this time—for a deep-sea mission on a submarine the size of a shark-snack. Their mission brings them whisker to whisker with a giant robotic kraken, nefarious R.A.T.S. agents, the underwater city of Cat-Lantis, and more underwater perils, all in a fight against time to keep a powerful weapon out of the clutches of evil.
“Mice in Black” meets “Mission Im-paw-sible,” this high-octane follow-up to The Mouse Watch will appeal to fans of the tiny rodent heroes, as well as draw new readers in with adorable antics and high-stakes adventure.

This is an adorable book perfect for younger middle-grade children. It takes place in the Rescue Rangers world so if you are familiar with Chip and Dale, you will be most comfortable. Even if you don’t know anything about the world, this story is filled out so you can pick it right up, especially if you love Saturday morning cartoons. The story develops the friendship between Bernie and Jarvis after they saved the world on their first day of training. As Bernie becomes a first level agent, she hopes to rescue more than cats from trees and a call comes in about the SS Moon spying for the RATS. They get to deep dive into the underwater to Catlantis. Yes, the story is full of quick humor and puns – so you can safely say – they RELEASE THE KRAKEN. This is a fun adventure and promotes friendship and self-reliance while working as a team.
