Armstrong: The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon
A long time ago a mouse learned to fly . . . and crossed the Atlantic. But what happened next? Torben Kuhlmann's stunning new book transports readers to the moon and beyond! On the heels of Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse comes Armstrong: A Mouse on the Moon where dreams are determined only by the size of your imagination and the biggest innovators are the smallest of all. The book ends with a brief non-fiction history of human space travel from Galileo s observations concerning the nature of the universe to man's first steps on the moon."
"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"
