Emil and the Detectives

Erich Kästner
Published by:
Vintage Classics
Suitable for ages:

This adventure story was written for young children to get excited, to imagine themselves achieving great and fun things, and to cheer three cheers at the end when it all comes out right. It achieves its purpose, capturing the imagination of young readers who wish they could run free and face danger like these boys of Berlin.

It ignites the modern child's sense of freedom. A group of boys organise themselves and catch a thief.

This is an entertaining and profitable adventure. The good guys are good, the bad guy is bad, the adults appreciate the efforts of the children. The characters are loveable and respectable. The main boy Emil is an honest conscientious boy who loves and cares for his widowed mother. A fun story with wholesome characters.
