About the Author

Torben Kuhlmann studied illustration and communications design at the Hamburg University of Applied Science, with book illustration as his main subject. In June 2012 he finished his studies by writing and illustrating the children's book Lindbergh--The Tale of a Flying Mouse. This was his first picture book, and within a very short time it became a best seller. It has now been translated into more than thirty languages. Further mouse adventures followed with Armstrong (2016), Edison (2018), and Einstein (2021), all of which have achieved cult status.

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"
