About the Author

Torben Kuhmann was born in Germany in 1982. Highly creative as a young child, Torben was recognized as early as kindergarten for being a gifted draftsman. He was captivated by small airplanes, strange machines, and steaming trains; these elements made their way into his drawings. He studied illustration and design at the Hamburg University for Applied Sciences. His preferred media are pen and watercolor. He also works with acrylics, oil paints, and digital programs. He works as a freelance illustrator in Hamburg. His books Lindbergh-The Tale of a Flying Mouse, Moletown, Armstrong - The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon, and Edison - The Mystery of the Missing Mouse Treasure quickly became best sellers and owe their inventiveness to Torben's great enthusiasm for unusual mechanical inventions. Einstein - The Fantastic Journey of a Mouse Through Space and Time is his fifth picture book published by NorthSouth Books.

Reviews

*Starred Review: "Kuhlmann s meticulous, precise illustrations are the star of this nearly wordless book, and each realistic spread of expanding modernization reveals an enormous amount of detail and evokes deep emotion. A poignant picture book with an unmistakable message and gorgeous, mesmerizing artwork."- Sarah Hunter, Booklist"
..".they [younger readers] will be transfixed by the gracefully drafted and soberly colored paintings of the moles, their intricately engineered machines, and their exhausted, poorly-lit world."- Publishers Weekly
"Kuhlmann's art for the underground city is richly done in earthy tones...[and] will pull in readers..."- Kirkus Reviews
"The Lorax hits the same environmental notes, but Moletown is the subtler of the two...Explicit in its message. Subtle in its presentation. In short, a beaut."- Betsy Bird, Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal
*Starred Review: "A poignant statement about the spread of civilization resulting in the destruction of nature, thought-provoking and unique." Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, School Library Journal"
