Emil and the Detectives

The book was immediately popular and the original version sold an initial two million copies. Compared with existing children's literature at the time, its most unusual aspect was its realistic setting in a contemporary Berlin peopled with some fairly rough characters, not in a sanitized fantasy world; also that it refrained from obvious moralizing, letting the characters' deeds speak for themselves.

The story begins in a provincial German town called Neustadt, [a] home to year-old schoolboy Emil Tischbein. His father has died and his mother is raising him alone while working as a hairdresser. She sends Emil to Berlin to stay with his aunt and grandmother, bestowing on him marks , a sum that has taken some months to save from her modest earnings.

On the way, he is very careful not to lose the money and pins it to the lining of his jacket using a sewing needle. On the train to Berlin, Emil shares his compartment with a mysterious man in a bowler hat who introduces himself as Herr Grundeis. Emil accepts some chocolate from the man and then falls asleep.

When he wakes up, his money has disappeared and so has Herr Grundeis. Emil gets off the train in a different part of Berlin from where he intended. When he spots Grundeis in the crowded station, he follows him, determined to get his money back.

Emil dare not call the police because the local policeman in Neustadt has seen him paint the nose of a local monument red so he feels that he is "a kind of criminal" himself. While Grundeis is eating his lunch in a restaurant, Emil meets a local boy called Gustav and tells him about his mission.

Gustav offers to help and assembles a gang of local children who call themselves "the detectives". After following Grundeis to a hotel and spying on him all night, Emil and the gang follow the thief to a bank, where he tries to exchange the money for smaller bills. One of the boy detectives follows him into the bank and tells the bank teller that the money is stolen. Emil goes in and tries to tell the bank teller his story.

He proves that the money is his by describing the holes left by the needle he used to pin the bills to the lining of his jacket. Once arrested, Grundeis is found out to be a member of a gang of bank robbers. Emil and his new friends become local heroes, and Emil receives a bounty of marks for capturing Grundeis. After everything is straightened out, Emil's grandmother says that the moral of the story is: "Never send cash — always use postal service.

The story has been filmed several times. An early German version from featured a screenplay by the young Billy Wilder , with uncredited writing work by Emeric Pressburger and starring Rolf Wenkhaus as Emil. The film proved to be a commercial success and is widely considered to be the best film adaptation.

There was also a British television series which condensed the story into three minute episodes. Emil and the Detectives greatly helped launch the sub-genre of children's detective fiction, depicting groups of children banding together to solve mysteries and catch criminals, which in English became popular through the writings of Enid Blyton.
