it was ok
bookshelves: borrowed, 2010, translation

My first kids book from Erich Kästner and I quite liked it :)

Emil goes on the train to meet his aunt, grandmother and cousin in Berlin. On the way his money is stolen and he decides to follow the robber. And so he starts an adventure where he's joined by many detective kids in Berlin.

However, I've read a Portuguese translation and it was really bad (this edition is from 1970)... at times, I could only really understand what the sentences meant when I put them back in German :( It'd have been easier to read the original version!!

Anyway, thank you TC for the loan :)
