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, its aunt gifts Knigi a book on its birthnight. But something is wrong with the book, 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 Knigi ends up getting the surprise of its life. Knigi discovers the adventures and happiness that reading can bring.
