Time is relative! Award-winning, illustrator Torben Kuhlmann’s brilliant new book bends time and imagination!
When an inventive mouse misses the biggest cheese festival the world has ever seen, he’s determined to turn back the clock. But what is time, and can it be influenced? With the help of a mouse clockmaker, a lot of inventiveness, and the notes of a certain famous Swiss physicist he succeeds in traveling back in time. But when he misses his goal by eighty years, the only one who can help is an employee of the Swiss Patent Office, who turned our concept of space and time upside down.
From the creator of 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 comes Einstein. Torben Kuhlmann, in his fourth mouse adventure, explores the question: Suppose Albert Einstein’s famous theories first came into being through an encounter with a little mouse.
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, 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.
Constance Lombardo started drawing when she was ten years old and got her BFA in illustration from Syracuse University in 1985. Mr. Puffball: Stunt Cat to the Stars is her first novel. She lives in Asheville, NC.
