Kästner!

I have found the perfect books to practice my German on: Erich Kästner's works! I'll order them in September, so that I can start reading them in October, after the Göthe-Institut crash course in September.

Ach, sweet childhood memories...

What's that you say? Never heard of Kästner? Do yourself a favor: drop everything and read Emil and the Detectives as soon as possible. Embarrassingly (for you Anglophones, that is!), Kästner's virtually unknown and untranslated in(to) English.
