Little Ghost (The)
by Otfried Preussler
Age Range: 9-11
Little Ghost lives locked in a chest in the dusty attic of Castle Eulenstein. Each night, at the stroke of midnight little Ghost wakes up and happily haunts the empty castle rooms. Sometimes he visits his friend the owl, Mr Twoohoo but at the stroke of one, he always returns to his chest to sleep. It has been like this for as long as little Ghost can remember. He has one great desire, to see the world in daylight, just once. But how can he make is wish come true?
This charming, quirky tale about a lovable little Ghost by German author Otfried Preussler with its comic black-and-white line drawings by F.J. Tripp and translation by award-winning Anthea Bell is sure to delight young readers. Preussler’s books are known throughout the world, more than 50 million copies have been sold worldwide and they have been translated into 55 languages. It is pleasing to see one of Preussler’s titles available in English again for a whole new audience to enjoy.
