In June 2012 he completed his studies with the children’s book “Lindbergh – The adventurous story of a flying mouse”. His debut book has received numerous international awards and was nominated for the German Youth Literature Award 2015. In July 2016 “Armstrong – The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon” was published. Torben Kuhlmann’s books have been translated into over 30 languages to date. His latest stroke of genius is “Edison – The Mystery of the Lost Mouse Treasure”, published in August 2018 and number 1 on the SPIEGEL bestseller list. Torben Kuhlmann lives and works in Hamburg.
For the first time a selection of his best-known original drawings will be on show at the Ludwig Museum. These include illustrations for Edison, Lindberg, Armstrong (2018). It is always well-known role models that he transfers to his small but shrewd mouse heroes. Humorous, funny and warm-hearted illustrations. The drawings are accompanied by a reading by Bastian Pastewka, the provision of audio books (audio sequences) and film clips (requested). An absolute pleasure for young and old.
