This review is from: Emil And The Detectives (Red Fox Classics) (Paperback)
I had to review this to bump up the star rating; so long as it has its original illustrations, this is a classic suspense tale for young readers, in which the atmosphere of pre-war working class Germany is powerfully evoked. Or are today's kids too sophisticated? Suffice it to say that no film (no English language film, anyway) could do this story justice.
