by Torben Kuhlmann“You, see, one should never underestimate us mice.”
If you have read any of Torben Kuhlmann’s history-inspired books you know by now that mice are capable of changing the world! Following on from their fellow adventurers who learned to fly (Lindbergh) and landed on the moon (Armstrong), two unlikely friends build a vessel to help them find missing treasure at the bottom of the ocean. The treasure may not be what you expect!
Kuhlmann cleverly weaves the story of Thomas Edison in an accessible way for children of all ages through beautifully detailed illustrations and an engaging narrative. Edison is a perfect text to read together under a visualiser allowing children to explore the artwork which is a real treat. Kuhlmann’s books are a wonderful inspiration for making links across the curriculum including history, science and geography as the mice begin a journey of discovery, research, design and exploration. A perfect addition to any classroom from Year 2 onwards.
