EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES by Erich Kastner has been in print ever
since it was first published in 1928. Young Emil is robbed on his
first real railway journey of money entrusted to him by his
hard-working mother for the relatives he is to stay with in Berlin.
A gang of boys about his own age come to his aid, and a thrilling
adventure full of surprises ensues as they use their wits to devise
a wonderfully simple but practical trick to capture the thief. With
every detail clearly drawn - from the tiresome business of getting
into best clothes for the journey, down to the final anxiety as to
what shall be done with a gloriously unexpected reward - this is a
story all young readers will enjoy. Reissued in the 'A Puffin Book'
series of children's modern classics.
