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. Captivated by small airplanes, strange machines, and steaming trains, these elements made their way

Reviews

"The detailed, warm-tone illustrations, in pencil and watercolor, document the mouse s progress as he repurposes household objects an alarm clock, tin foil, a glass ink well to construct a spacesuit and power his flight. Period details evoke the mid-1950s, and a plot twist suggests that the mouse s work paved the way for the human space program."- Nicole Lamy, New York Times Book Review"
"Wonderful drawings of this momentous flight to and from the moon will hold the reader spellbound...you will be compelled to read and enjoy from start to finish."- Charles Sutton, Vermont Country Sampler
*Starred Review. "This beautifully illustrated story is a feast for mind and eyes and a strong selection to complement STEAM curricula." Susan Scheps, School and Library Journal"
*Starred Review. "Kuhlmann intermixes beautiful wordless spreads and paragraphs of text as the mouse studies, sketches, builds, and ultimately takes to the skies. Rich with adventure and the spirit of discovery, the text rightfully declares, 'Nothing is too difficult for a clever mouse!'" Julia Smith, Booklist"
*Starred Review. "As with the previous book, Kuhlmann s artwork is the real star. Every spread is drafted with remarkable imaginative power (the mouse s handsewn spacesuit enchants, as does an early experimental vessel, a firecracker attached to a roller skate), while the space scenes are NASA-worthy. This adventure will easily win Kuhlmann even more fans."- Publishers Weekly"
*Starred Review. "The illustrations are visually immersive for their wealth of precisely rendered period items and architecture...'One Small Step for a Mouse' indeed."- Kirkus Reviews
