Emil is excited to be taking the train on his own for the first time

But he doesn't like the look of his fellow passenger - the man in the bowler hat

Emil will just have to keep his wits about him and his money in his pocket

But Emil falls asleep and when he wakes up the man in the bowler hat is gone ‐ and so is the money!

Emil is determined to get it back and he teams up with a gang of young detectives

And so begins a hair‐raising chase across Berlin to catch the dirty rotten thief ...
