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: The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to 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.
'One Small Step for a Mouse’ indeed.
Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
This beautifully illustrated story is a feast for mind and eyes and a strong selection to complement STEAM curricula.
School Library Journal, Starred Review
Use this book for everything you can think of: in art lessons, history lessons, discussions on creativity and innovation, studies on why some people (or mice) think differently from everyone else; and the fact that everyone can achieve their goals, no matter how small or furry, if they only believe (and work and plan and experiment).
