G then is its inclination to tap into popular tropes in our own history then turn them ever so gently on their heads The end result is a book where you might easily lose sight of the bigger picture until that final moment when everything becomes horribly clear The story of Moletown began many years ago A single solitary mole moves beneath a meadow to live Not long thereafter he s joined by other moles And over time life underground changed Before our eyes we see it We see the vast construction projects taking place to make Moletown a livable community We see the population explosion the increased technological advances and ifferent transportation models Life becomes busier for the moles while outside in the meadow nature is taking a severe hit The green is close to isappearing altogether but turn to the last pages in the book and there we see evidence not just of change but of the moles as a whole taking on the responsibility of their newly green again meadowlands Kuhlmann initially burst upon the American picture book scene with the highly etailed Lindbergh a story of a mouse with a yen for flight A little bit The Arrival a little bit An American Tale and a little bit steampunk via Beatrix Potter it was his hyper realistic animals placed in extraordinary circumstances that stayed with young readers In Moletown that level of Climate Smart Agriculture (Natural Resource Management and Policy Book 52) detail and attention is there but the moles have a far cartoonish feel to them This is not to say that theyon t look like moles every inch of them Yet Kuhlmann has simplified his hyper realistic renderings of animals and traded that attention in for set Academic Body designs and landscapes Here he plays with perspective plunging usown into the heart of the moles mining operation the scaffolding twisting around and around Saint Germain On Alchemy down andown Sharp eyed spotters will note other spreads where the stop signs are shaped like mole claws and the trains go vertically as well as horizontally The Chasing the Red Queen details are there to an elegantegree but the feel is Haylee different from Lindbergh certainly as is the length of the piece One of the most amazing aspects of the book is the A surrealist picture book almost without words about the foundation andevelopment of a mole city it s a bit like John Marsden s The Rabbits and a bit like JG Ballard s Billennium but has a style all its own There is a beautiful animated trailer version hereA remarkably apposite passage from There is a beautiful animated trailer version hereA remarkably apposite passage from s Against the Day which I came across a couple of The Columbia Guide to South African Literature in English Since 1945 (The Columbia Guides to Literature Since 1945) days laterIn the center of town some huge underground construction venture was in progress citizens stood on overpasses and catwalks gazingown on concrete pits full of steam machinery Hijacking the Brain draft animals andebris When asked its purpose they frowned puzzled as if they had not uite heard the visitors Home some said it s home Where is home where you come from.

REVIEW Maulwurfstadt


MaulwurfstadtThis would not be the first nor the tenth book I would use to have a conversation with a child about #The Environment And The Impact #environment and the impact are having on it I wouldn t avoid it altogether but its message is so suddenly bleak and if you The Path to Gay Rights don t look at the inside back cover page you will miss the tiny oversimplified glimmer of hope The rise of a mole metropolis underground takes an environmental toll A stunningly illustrated cautionary tale Another stunningly illustrated this time wordless picture book from rising star and 2015 Golden Island prize winner of Nami Concours Torben Kuhlmann Hisetail and visual storytelling sense in this and his 2014 Lindberg are a pleasure to experience Nearly wordless the mole society in this book makes tons of progress but at what costThis is going to be a fantastic book to read along with The Lorax or The Little House The illustrations are so rich I think I Karen vs Alien d like multiple copies so kids can pore over theetails I would like to thank Netgalley NorthSouth Books and the author Torben Kuhlmann for a free Gendered Citizenships digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinionIt is hard to rate this book as it has almost no text but the pictures are amazing and the idea is something a lot of people are trying to shout out to the world it is of course about progress moles make and its impact on environmentThis is a little children s book which has pictures than actual text and I think is a perfect way for parents to interact with their children explain what is happening in the book and compare it to their lives It is an retelling of something we ve The fabulously talented Torben Kuhlmann the German authorillustrator who made hisebut with Lindbergh The Tale of a Flying Mouse returns with this second picture book an almost wordless history of the evelopment of Moletown Founded when one mole moves in underneath a green meadow the settlement soon grows becoming ever complex and eveloped The surface soon shows the result of this underground urban sprawl with only a tiny patch of green grass leftOriginally published in German as Maulwurfstadt this gorgeously illustrated cautionary tale Singing the Law doesn t really cover any new ground when it comes to its ecological message about theangers of overdevelopment Dr Seuss s The Lorax and Bill Peet s The Wump World have been around for many ecades and Impart The Same Message What Makes Moletown the same message What makes Moletown out is Kuhlmann s beautiful artwork and the fact that his overdeveloping society is made up of moles There isn t much text here only a few pages have any words at all but the illustrations are than capable of carrying the story Recommended to fans of Kuhlmann s artwork in whose number I now count myself and to young readers who enjoy animal fiction Disclaimer ARC via Netgalley I never really thought about mole. Torben Kulhmann's stunningly illustrated nearly wordless tale offers a fascinating window into an imaginary yet hauntingly familiar world under our feet. S much until I read William Horwood s Book of Silence Trilogy and his Duncton Chronicles the actual reading order "should be Chronicles and then Silence I liked Wind in the "be Chronicles and then Silence I liked Wind in the but I was a Ratty person if *you know what I mean But after journeying with Horwood s Privet Mayweed Rooster and others I *know what I mean But after journeying with Horwood s Privet Mayweed Rooster and others I never looked at mole the same way Which is why when I saw this book as a read now option on Netgalley I ownloaded it Kuhlmann s mole is a fable like most animal tales are on some level Perhaps it is too heavy handed I say perhaps because I found it a little heavy handed but this is a picture book with little text If I was a child I m not sure I would have the same reaction It s a simple story and a timely one about when is too much progress too much It is mostly pictures with opening and closing lines being the primary written words There are front and back pages We Sell Drugs done like newspapers pointing to the past and future of Moletown More importantly the newspaper type illustrations at the end of the book make up for the abrupt ending of the painted story The charm in the book is the illustrations Kuhlmann s illustrations are stunning and even when seen on a computer screen incrediblyetailed There is great use light as well as flashes of humor in how the moles are Problem Solving in Data Structures Algorithms Using C++ depicted It is the type of illustrated book that will be treasured not so much for the story but the beautiful rendering of that story Moletown manages to make its case by employing very few words the industrialization of Moletown has had aevastating impact on the environment and the moles seem stuck in a cycle of working and watching tv Hmmmm Torben Kuhlmann Is A Brilliant Illustrator But I Found This Book To a brilliant illustrator but I found this book to very Literature of Africa dark literally andepressing My kids really Women and Sustainable Agriculture: Interviews With 14 Agents of Change didn t care for this though they loved Lindbergh The Tale of a Flying Mouse and Armstrong The Adventerous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon I would highly recommend both for the creativity and universal appeal This one with its important message failed to capture the audience at my house 25 stars Cautionary tales for kids who can to a Crossing the color line in American politics and African American literature darn thing about the original problem It s sort of a subgenre of its very own As I hold this lovely little book Moletown in my hands I am transported back in time to the moment I first encountered The Lorax by Dr Seuss A child of the 80s my youth was a time when scaring kids straight was an accepted educational techniue utilized in everything from environmental protection to saying no torugs The film version of The Lorax bore this out and gave me some nice little bite sized psychological scars for years to come These Rebuilding days weon t usually go in for the whole learning through fear techniue Even picture books that sport a message are prone to be mildly sad than anything else What makes Moletown so very interestin. Where a mole suddenly recognizes the precarious balance between progress and preservation But is it too lateKulhmann's open ended text encourages thoug. ,
