About the Author:

ERICH KÄSTNER was born in Dresden in Germany in 1899. Much like Emil himself Erich Kästner was an only child. He was devoted to his mother who worked as a hairdresser to supplement their family income. Erich Kästner went into the army in 1917, and his experiences there made him feel strongly that war and violence were wrong. He published Emil and the Detectives in 1928 and Emil and the Three Twins in 1933. The books were very popular but when Hitler's government -- the Nazis -- were in power Kastner's books were labelled anti-German. Joseph Goebbels, who was in charge of the Government Propaganda, said "In the name of the fight against decadence and moral corruption! In the name of breeding and rectitude in state and family, I consign to the flames the writings of Heinrich Mann, Ernst Glasser and Erich Kästner!" Erich Kästner was the only one who was present as his books were tossed on to the flames in 1933. Luckily, Hitler and Goebbels may have thrown Kästner's books on to the flames in 1933, but Emil has outlasted them and lives to spy another day. Erich Kästner was awarded the American Library Association Mildred L. Batchelder Award and the Hans Christian Andersen Award. He died in 1974.

Review:

"Emil and the Three Twins is that very rare thing - a successful sequel" * Observer * "Emil's Berlin, and the Baltic resort of its sequel Emil and the Three Twins, were as vivid to me as Arthur Ransome's English Lakeland" -- Philip Pullman * Independent * "This must be one of the most delicious children's books ever written" * Daily Express * "So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!" * National Association for the Teaching of English *
