Whether you are a child or an adult – anyone who loves books will love Knigi! Ghosts do not celebrate their birthdays, but ›birthnights‹. When little ghost Knigi gets to the age when human children learn to read, his aunt gives him a book on his birthnight. But something is wrong with it, for it is completely empty and the pages are white. Knigi decides to get to the bottom of the matter, to find out how reading works. And he ends up getting the surprise of his life. Knigi discovers the adventures and happiness that reading can bring.
