Lenny among Ghosts

A somewhat different ghost story

As Lenny arrives at the Castle Röckenpöppel Boarding School in the middle of the night, he can hardly believe his eyes. The students are in the process of gathering for a meal, of which there is nothing to be seen except empty plates and glasses. And yet everyone seems to be enjoying their food. And when he is finally allowed to go to bed at dawn, everything around him crumbles to dust in the rising sun. The entire castle is nothing but a pitiful shack during the daylight hours - and during nighttime it is the exclusive home of ghosts who are learning the refined art of haunting. It is impossible to escape from here, so Lenny must learn how not to be a human and rather be a ghost.

A modern-time “Casper the friendly ghost”-story.
