4.0 out of 5 stars Adventuresome children's stuff, 6 Feb. 2012
I bought this as I had had it as a child, and like so many books that you knew to be excellent, they disappeared as you grew up. 'Emil & the Detectives' fascinated me then, I think, because like the Famous Five, the children's boldness and potency together knew no bounds, and the writing style is comfortable and occasionally pacey. A really good tale of daring, with some interesting insights into ordinary life in Weimar Germany (sunday suits, train carriage compartments, etc) and some very sweet and satisfying moments.
