The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of Philip Pullman's favourites: "A great political story: democracy in action."
If his mother had known the amazing adventures Emil was going to have in Berlin, she would never have let him go. But when his money goes missing on the train, Emil's determination to get it back leads him to team up with the detectives he meets in Berlin - and that was just the start.
The Good Book Guide Review. Travelling alone on a train to visit his grandparents. Emil is robbed of the hard-earned money which his mother has given him. Instead of calling the police. Emil, with the help of a gang of children, chases the thief himself. A wonderful piece of child enterprise that foreshadows Tintin.
