Emil and the Detectives by Erich Kastner

SKU 00042
In stock
Product Details

A classic that has stood the test of time, and has just as much appeal to children as it did when it was first published in 1959.

Emil is excited to be taking the train on his own. He doesn't much like the look of the man in the bowler hat.

But, then he falls asleep and when he wakes up the man is gone, so is his money. He teams up with a gang of young detectives

who race across Berlin to catch the thief..

There is something about a well-written detective story that draws children in.

Highly recommend for 7 to 11 years.
