'Gadzooks!' said Dot ... 'The things that boy can do!' Dot loves play-acting, dressing up her pet dachshund Piefke and making up words like 'splentastic'. Her best friend is Anton, who lives in a little apartment and looks after his mother. They share a secret - every night, when their parents think they are asleep, they sell matches and shoelaces on the streets of Berlin with Dot's grumpy governess. But why? The answers involve a villain called 'Robert the Devil', a club-wielding maid, a wobbly tooth, a pair of silver shoes and a policeman dancing the tango, as Dot and Anton get into all sorts of scrapes and even solve a crime in this delightful, touching and hilarious adventure story.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[Erich Kastner] has a way of being very funny while also making a serious point Irish Times Dot is a delightful creation... A child reader will adore the pug dogs and cream cakes and Christmas lights, all winningly illustrated by Walter Trier-the Quentin Blake to Kastner's Roald Dahl. An adult, though, will see behind the pigtails and street chases, to signs of a Germany which had lost track of morality and reason Standpoint magazine Full to the brim with memorable characters... The bold line drawings by Walter Trier enhance the story wonderfully... Nearly a century later the messages of courage, pride, respect and friendship remain equally relevant today Children's Books Ireland First published in 1931 and last available in English in 1973, the tale is presented here in handsome packaging with its original fluent line drawings, and it wears its age reasonably well... A minor classic featuring a pair of intrepid protagonists, a comically suspenseful climax, and a mildly caricatured adult cast Kirkus
