- Emil is going on the train to visit relatives in Berlin. His mother puts an envelope of money in his care, to deliver along with some flowers when he arrives. Things go wrong when he dozes off, only to awaken and discover that his car-mate and his money are gone. Determined to get his money back, Emil stumbles upon a group of boys in Berlin who quickly organize to capture the thief.

Hardly dated at all, this is a light, fun story. The author had some fun with naming characters, which are listed in the beginning of the book. Kids will enjoy Emil's and the detectives' triumph over the thief. A great read for boys, in particular, if only because there aren't enough books out there for boys! The edition I've read for this review is translated by May Massee.

Older = Better  Oct 19, 2008
I have adored Kasner's books but I found this translation not as vibrant as the older versions. If you want a more authentic copy search for used books.
Emil and the Detectives  Jul 31, 2008
My eight-year-old grandson called me to ask if there were any more books like this one, because he liked it so much.
true classic  Jul 17, 2008
This is obviously a true classic that requires no introduction. I was delighted to find it in this modern form. clear translation and clean line illustration. I was also delighted that my daughter (8) got hooked on this charming story and book in the age of multi-color multi-media distractions. Highly recommended.
