A reissue with new illustrations by Mini Grey.
f.p. Sweden 1966; first UK edition 1973, as Emil’s Pranks.
There’s a rat running amok in Emil’s house, and he’s determined to capture it. But hiding the rat trap just under his father’s bed probably isn’t ideal . . . That’s just the start of Emil’s adventures, which, once begun, never stop. Hens, dogs, little sisters – and adults – all flee his path. But Emil doesn’t mean to be bad, it’s just that trouble – and fun – follow him wherever he goes.
Look out for Emil And The Great Escape and Emil’s Clever Pig, also reissued and re-illustrated.
