Classic Children's Thriller Story
Reviewed in India on 27 November 2016
Bought for my daughter and (as usual) I read it too. Interesting picture of inter-war Berlin. Stretches reality a bit (OK, so it is a children's book). On
the other hand, (as viewed through a child's eyes), it depicts a relatively positive picture of those hard times - money is scarce, but it is relatively
peaceful, safe and orderly, and quite different from what came afterwards. More a thriller than a detective story as such, interspersed with a few adult observations.
