Fans of Emil and the Detective will love this second adventure in which the characters, on holiday at the seaside, have a new adventure.
Meeting the three Byrons, father and sons Mackie and Jackie, Emil and his friends soon get involved in a plot to abandon one of them and the exciting rescue the follows! Action packed and full of boyish energy, it also conjures up wonderful images of a previous period.

About the Author

Erich Kastner

Erich Kästner was born in Dresden in 1899. He is the author of many novels in children's books, poems and essays. Together with other German writers, he tried to attack Hitler's totalitarism and lack of freedom with humour and pacifist ideas.
Kästner's children's books reflected his social optimism based on his belief in the renewing power of the each new generation of youth. He was awarded with the Hans Christian Andersen in 1960. Though he became popular through his children's books, he was also very successful among adults as a novelist and poet.
