Cover Reveal: Moletown by Torben Kuhlmann
Folks, I make no bones about the books that I love. And when I saw that jaw-dropping picture book Lindbergh last year in all its high-flying mousie glory, I knew I was looking at something special. Now I am so pleased and honored to offer you a quickie peek and glance at German author/illustrator Torben Kuhlmann’s next glorious book. It’s Moletown (ISBN: 978-0735842083). And it’s amazing:
Sort of The Lorax by way of The Rabbits, no? And these interior spreads haven’t even shown you the moles’ intricate underground city. It’s an absolute jaw-dropper.
The book has the distinction of having a remarkably cool title in its native Germany: “Maulwurfstadt”. If you know the language you can get some additional information about the book here.
Coming to shelves in America on September 1st!
