5.0 out of 5 stars A great classic
Kaestner certainly knew how to write a good story that appeals not only to children but also to adults like myself. A perennial pleasure for readers of all ages. This edition is a treasure not to be missed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Book was never delivered
I and my wife visited Munich over christmas to see our baby Grandaughter. I had hoped to take 'Emil' with me as a very suitable gift.
What a missed opportunity! There is now no hurry, but please try and get the book to me, so I can post it for my son to read to her.
Normally I am happy with Amazon, this time it was a disaster.
Your unhappy customer, Jim...

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and gripping story, 2 Jan 2013

Gave this to my grandson for Christmas as it was enjoyed by his great grandmother, grandmother and father and hopefully now by him. It's a quirky, funny story and gives a flavour of the 1930s but is accessible for modern children too.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am 8 years old, 18 April 2014
This review is from: Emil and the Detectives (Vintage Children's Classics) (Paperback)
As a child I think this book was fantastically good because it had parts that made me wonder what will happen next. My favourite character was DEFINITLY Emil, you might want watch out for the man in the bowler hat (Grundis) and out of 5 stars I would rate it 5!!!

Having reached my 80s I was remembering my favourite books and wondered if they were still loved by children today. Found copies sold by Amazon.They arrived quickly, well packed and in good condition.
