  • Emil and the Detectives

    I got a flyer through my door yesterday my for my local theatre and saw they had a stage version of this on.

    Does anyone remember reading this book as a child? I must have read it several times from the library at junior school.

    Emil gets his money stolen on a train but manages to track the thief down and get the money back with the help of some children.

    The only thing to look forward to is the past

      That was one of my favourite stories as a kid. I didn't get around to actually reading the book, but we had a German supply teacher that took our class for a whole month and she read the book out loud to us as we sat around in a big circle. She even taught us a little German as well and it was a sad day when our regular teacher(who was a real cow of a woman) came back.
