Paul returns home from school one day to discover a tiny ghost is living in the keyhole of his front door. He names him Zippel, and the little ghost is curious about everything, from food and clothes to how the toilet flushes! But Paul's parents want to change the locks - can Paul find Zippel a new home in time? Filled with colourful pictures from best-loved illustrator Axel Scheffler, Zippel is a charming story about finding friends in the most unexpected of places. Translated by Rachel Ward.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Alex Ruhle has created a warm-hearted, smart children's book which easily lends itself to reading aloud or on one's own. There is a lot of wordplay (not least because Zippel likes to rhyme) and impish slapstick. The brightly coloured comicbook style of Gruffalo-artist Axel Scheffler is a perfect match to the text. A story about family and everyday problems, friendship, courage and a very special little ghost" -- Anja Witzke * Donaukurier *
"This fascinating story contains a lot of wit and has been skillfully illustrated. It is also well suited for reading aloud to children age 6 and up" * Zuricher Oberlander *
"The book contains many colourful pictures by Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo). First and foremost, though, Alex Ruhle's children's book debut impresses with its informal child-friendly narrative style and lots of hilarious ideas. A gem which leaves you wishing for more" * Hamburger Morgenpost *
"This heart-warming and funny story about friendship, courage and mysterious neighbours has been written in such a fascinating way that all children between 5 and 9 will get their money's worth. And the great illustrator of The Gruffalo, Axel Scheffler, illustrates all of this lovingly and inventively, so that his illustrations alone make you want to flip through the pages. But by that time you are already hooked" * Suddeutsche Zeitung *
"Entertaining reading adventure, superbly illustrated by Axel Scheffler" * Westfalische Nachrichten *
