Quite an early adaptation, text in Fraktur, with an attractive cover image of a man and a boy in a train compartment. The boy looks like Tintin. It is a book for schools with sections on words and phrases, questions on the text and a short German-English dictionary at the end.

Features not one but two streetcars: one horse-drawn and one electric. ( )

Young Emil is off to visit his grandmother and aunt in Berlin, but has his money stolen from him on the train. He spends the rest of the book tracking down the thief, with the help of some kids he meets on the streets of Berlin.
This one is a complete hoot. Clever and witty and adorable. ( )
