  • First published in 1929, this is an exciting story about a boy who loses some money and, along with a group of new friends, manages to corner the thief.

    Michael Rosen, S Magazine, Sunday Express
  • Emil is a wonder... the book had, and still has, the effect of making me feel part of Emil's little gang of boys... Emil and the Detectives is a little masterpiece... Read it and you will be happy

    Maurice Sendak
  • The main pleasure of the book is in the way in which it plays to the fantasy of omnipotence in a child: that a team of kids could really organise themselves into a team of detectives and catch a thief

    Michael Rosen, Guardian
  • The perfect introduction to the world of fictional crime detection

    Independent
