The Lovereading4Kids comment
The funny, heart-warming story of two young comrades-in-arms, by the author of Emil and the Detectives. Join Dot and Anton as they get into all sorts of scrapes and even solve a crime in this delightful, touching and hilarious adventure story.
Dot and Anton by Erich Kastner, Nathan Burton
'Gadzooks!' said Dot ...'The things that boy can do!'
Dot loves play-acting, dressing up her pet dachshund Piefke and making up words like 'splentastic'. Her best friend is Anton, who lives in a little apartment and looks after his mother. They share a secret - every night, when their parents think they are asleep, they sell matches and shoelaces on the streets of Berlin with Dot's grumpy governess. But why? The answers involve a villain called 'Robert the Devil', a club-wielding maid, a wobbly tooth, a pair of silver shoes and a policeman dancing the tango.
[Erich Kastner] has a way of being very funny while also making a serious point Irish Times
Dot is a delightful creation... A child reader will adore the pug dogs and cream cakes and Christmas lights, all winningly illustrated by Walter Trier-the Quentin Blake to Kastner's Roald Dahl. An adult, though, will see behind the pigtails and street chases, to signs of a Germany which had lost track of morality and reason Standpoint magazine
Full to the brim with memorable characters... The bold line drawings by Walter Trier enhance the story wonderfully... Nearly a century later the messages of courage, pride, respect and friendship remain equally relevant today Children's Books Ireland
