Emil und die detektives! (German title)
14 January 2008 | by ttholt-1See all my reviews

I love reading the book, "Emil and the Detectives" over and over again! It's simplicity is so understated - my brother dismissed it as "third grade", but anyone who's had money stolen from them and wished they could have gotten it back will love how one little boy determinedly follows the thief who stole his two marks while the poor boy was sleeping on a train. The boy is a stranger in the town of old Berlin who makes friends with some local boys who put their heads and resources together and with the help of a lot of kids and a useful safety pin catch the thief in the end. What's wonderful about the book is not only the instant camaraderie among the boys but their resourcefulness in the big city is impressive. It's a great book for third grade and beyond, and Disney did a fair job of translating it into a movie without adding too much Hollywood extraneous.
