After a young boy goes to sleep upset that he's getting a book for his birthday, he's visited in the night by Patience and Fortitude, the two stone lions who guard the New York Public Library. Soon, he's magically whisked away from his cozy home in the Bronx, and the two mighty lions show him the wonder of the library. There, the inquisitive Latino boy discovers the power of books and their role not only in his own life, but also in the lives of the people he loves.

Review
 
"Kuhlmann's art for the underground city is richly done in earthy tones...[and] will pull in readers..."- Kirkus Reviews
 
"The Lorax hits the same environmental notes, but Moletown is the subtler of the two...Explicit in its message. Subtle in its presentation. In short, a beaut."- Betsy Bird, Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal
 
"...they [younger readers] will be transfixed by the gracefully drafted and soberly colored paintings of the moles, their intricately engineered machines, and their exhausted, poorly-lit world."- Publishers Weekly
 
*Starred Review: "A poignant statement about the spread of civilization resulting in the destruction of nature, thought-provoking and unique." –Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, School Library Journal
 
*Starred Review: "Kuhlmann’s meticulous, precise illustrations are the star of this nearly wordless book, and each realistic spread of expanding modernization reveals an enormous amount of detail and evokes deep emotion. A poignant picture book with an unmistakable
message and gorgeous, mesmerizing artwork."- Sarah Hunter, Booklist
 
About the Author
Torben Kuhlmann was born in Germany in 1982. Highly creative as a young child, Torben was recognized as early as kindergarten for being a gifted draftsman. He was captivated by small airplanes, strange machines, and steaming trains; these elements made their way into his drawings. He studied illustration and design at the Hamburg University for Applied Sciences. His preferred media are pen and watercolor. He also works with acrylics, oil paints, and digital programs. He works as a freelance illustrator in Hamburg. His books Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse, Moletown, and Armstrong—The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon quickly became best sellers and owe their inventiveness to Torben’s great enthusiasm for unusual mechanical inventions. Edison —The Mystery of the Missing Mouse Treasure is his fourth picture book for NorthSouth Books.
