One small step for a mouse; one giant leap for aviation.

These are dark times . . . for a small mouse. A new invention--the mechanical mousetrap--has caused all the mice but one to flee to America, the land of the free. But with cats guarding the steamships, trans-Atlantic crossings are no longer safe. In the bleakest of places . . . the one remaining mouse has a brilliant idea. He must learn to fly

Debut illustrator Torben Kuhlmann's inventive tale and stunning illustrations will capture the imagination of readers--young and old--with the death-defying feats of this courageous young mouse.

About the Author
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.
