Einstein: The Fantastic Journey of a Mouse
Through Space and Time
What a disaster! The little mouse has missed the great cheese fair in Bern. He got there exactly one day too late. How could that have happened? The mouse begins to think about the nature of time… But no matter how much he learns, one question remains unanswered: can time be stopped, or even reversed? Thanks to his own inventiveness and with the help of Einstein’s theories, the mouse succeeds in building a time machine and embarks on an exciting journey…

Torben Kuhlmann: Autor der Mäuseabenteuer


Torben Kuhlmann has written a new mouse adventure, the fourth one in this series, in which he sends the mouse on an another fascinating journey. His previous picture books Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse, Armstrong: The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon, and Edison: The Mystery of the Missing Mouse Treasure became international bestsellers and have been translated into more than 30 different languages. The latest adventure – again superbly illustrated in watercolours and pencil – takes the series into the realm of science fiction, inspired by the great authors who have written in this genre.

Early Praise for EINSTEIN

“Another milestone in human-mouse collaboration, virtuosic of visuals and tongue in cheek of tone.”

Starred Kirkus Reviews

“If you’ve never seen a Kuhlmann book, you are in for a treat. I’ve always called him the Steampunk Beatrix Potter, but to be fair he’s more interesting than that. Over the years Kuhlmann’s books have charmed with their precision and attention to even the smallest of details. And now, at long last, we’re gonna get to see some time travel.”
