When an inventive mouse misses the biggest cheese festival the world has ever seen, he's determined to turn back the clock. But what is time, and can it be influenced? With the help of a mouse clockmaker, a lot of inventiveness, and the notes of a certain famous Swiss physicist he succeeds in traveling back in time. But when he misses his goal by eighty years, the only one who can help is an employee of the Swiss Patent Office, who turned our concept of space and time upside down.

From the creator of Lindbergh-The Tale of a Flying Mouse, Moletown, Armstrong - The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon, and Edison - The Mystery of the Missing Mouse Treasure comes Einstein. Torben Kuhlmann, in his fourth mouse adventure, explores the question: Suppose Albert Einstein's famous theories first came into being through an encounter with a little mouse?

Rave Reviews for Einstein:

"His unique ability to combine fun, facts, science and biography makes Einstein a real triumph."
BookPage, Starred Review

"As in Armstrong (2016) and Edison (2018), Kuhlmann employs a mix of narrative and fantastically detailed mouse's-eye-view pencil-and-watercolor scenes to portray a small, furry investigator intrepidly tackling scientific and technological challenges in a human-sized world-here involving old records in a certain Swiss patent office, clock gears and computer parts, trial and error, and equations on chalkboards." - Kirkus, Starred Review

About the author

Torben Kuhlmann studied illustration and communications design at the Hamburg University of Applied Science, with book illustration as his main subject. In June 2012 he finished his studies by writing and illustrating the children's book Lindbergh-The Tale of a Flying Mouse. This was his first picture book, and within a very short time it became a best seller. It has now been translated into more than thirty languages. Further mouse adventures followed with Armstrong (2016), Edison (2018), and Einstein (2021), all of which have achieved cult status.


Jetzt hat die kleine Maus doch wirklich das große Käsefest in Bern verpasst! Genau einen Tag ist sie zu spät gekommen. Wie konnte das passieren? Die Maus beginnt, sich mit dem Thema Zeit zu beschäftigen. Egal, wie viel sie lernt, eine Frage bleibt: Lässt sich die Zeit anhalten oder sogar zurückdrehen? Nach vielen vergeblichen Versuchen gelingt es der Maus durch ihren Erfindungsgeist und die Aufzeichnungen eines gewissen Albert Einstein, in die Vergangenheit zu reisen. Doch Zeitreisen will gelernt sein, und die Maus verfehlt ihr Ziel um knapp 80 Jahre. Wie soll sie jemals wieder in ihre eigene Zeit zurückkehren? Dann aber hat sie Glück im Unglück, denn jemand kreuzt ihren Weg, der wenig später unsere Vorstellung von Raum und Zeit auf den Kopf stellen sollte… In seinem vierten Mäuseabenteuer schickt Torben Kuhlmann seinen Helden auf eine Reise, wie sie nie zuvor eine Maus, und erst recht kein Mensch, unternommen hat. Mit ihrer komplexen Erzählstruktur setzt diese Geschichte völlig neue Maßstäbe. Die detailreichen und opulent gestalteten Bilder machen das raffinierte Spiel mit verschiedenen Zeitebenen zum reinsten Vergnügen.

Additional text

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.
