Children from a village school in Derbyshire talk about Emil and the Detectives.
Emil Tischbein, lives in a small village, called Neustadt, in Germany and his adventure begins on the slow train to Berlin. Red Earth worked with children aged 6+ at our local village school. We asked the children to give their responses to the story and its characters, and to think about what our play might look like. The children thought that the story was very exciting and that Emil was brave to travel all on his own to the big city.
