A long time ago a mouse learned to fly . . . and crossed the Atlantic. But what happened next? Torben Kuhlmann's stunning new book transports readers to the moon and beyond! On the heels of 'Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse' comes 'Armstrong: The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon ' - where dreams are determined only by the size of your imagination and the biggest innovators are the smallest of all. The book ends with a brief non-fiction history of human space travel-from Galileo's observations concerning the nature of the universe to man's first steps on the moon. AGES: 4-8 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. Captivated by small airplanes, strange machines, and steaming trains, these elements made their way into his drawings. He studied illustration and design at the University for Applied Sciences in Hamburg. 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 first work, 'Lindbergh - The Tale of a Flying Mouse', quickly became a best seller and owes its inventiveness to Torben's great enthusiasm for unusual mechanical inventions. He is also the author of 'Moletown'.
