Starred Review

Gr 2-5--A young mouse named Pete recruits a professor mouse from the University of Mice to help him find the treasure his ancestor mentions in a letter--a treasure lost at sea. Together, the two visit a library and a museum to figure out where the treasure may have been lost. Using the information they gather, the two mice create a mouse-size submarine and set off on their adventure. As in Kuhlmann's previous titles, Armstrong: The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon and Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse, the gorgeous illustrations tell most of the tale. The large trim size allows the art to include plenty of fascinating details that young readers will want to pore over. VERDICT Kuhlmann has created another science-based adventure full of delightful details. A first purchase for most libraries.--Heidi Grange, Summit Elementary School, Smithfield, UT

Torben Kuhlmann
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.
