Description


2019 Batchelder Honor Award

2019 ALA Notable Children's Book

Award-winning illustrator Torben Kuhlmann’s stunning new book transports readers to new depths where imagination lights the way! 

A long time ago, one mouse learned to fly, another landed on the moon...what will happen in the next Mouse adventure?

From the creator of Lindbergh—The Tale of a Flying Mouse and Armstrong, comes Edison—The Mystery of the Missing Mouse Treasure.

When two unlikely friends build a vessel capable of taking them to the bottom of the ocean find a missing treasure—the truth turns out to be far more amazing.
 

About the Author


Torben Kuhlmann 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, and Armstrong—The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon quickly became best sellers and owe their inventiveness to Torben’s great enthusiasm for unusual mechanical inventions. Edison —The Mystery of the Missing Mouse Treasure is his fourth picture book for NorthSouth Books.

Praise For…


*Starred Review. Edison is a beautiful and inspiring tale about two tiny creatures who refuse to belittle themselves by accepting the limits of “Never!” and who are awarded with history-shaping truth for their efforts. 
— Michelle Anne Schingler

*Starred Review. Kuhlmann has created another science-based adventure full of delightful details. 
— Heidi Grange

As in Kuhlmann's Armstrong (2016) and Lindbergh (2014), the journey turns out to be at least as rewarding as the prize. 
— Kirkus Reviews

Recommend this engrossing mix of STEM and animal adventure to kids fascinated by engineering or invention.
— Sarah Hunter
