School Library Journal - 08/01/2018 Gr 2–5—A young mouse named Pete recruits a professor mouse from the University of Mice to help him find the treasure his ancestor mentions in a letter—a treasure lost at sea. Together, the two visit a library and a museum to figure out where the treasure may have been lost. Using the information they gather, the two mice create a mouse-size submarine and set off on their adventure. As in Kuhlmann's previous titles, Armstrong: The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon and Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse, the gorgeous illustrations tell most of the tale. The large trim size allows the art to include plenty of fascinating details that young readers will want to pore over. VERDICT Kuhlmann has created another science-based adventure full of delightful details. A first purchase for most libraries.—Heidi Grange, Summit Elementary School, Smithfield, UT - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
