A tale of yesteryear - Emil and the Detectives review by KB

Spoiler Alert
29/01/2016

I owned a hardback copy of this book as a child.

It was one of my most treasured possessions.

I don't remember losing it or giving it away.

When I saw this dvd listed, I was drawn to it.

The story is just as captivating now, fifty years on.
