Casper moves into an old wooden house with his parents. Their new neighbour is the strange Old Auntie Amalia. At first, the boy is rather disappointed, as there are no other children living nearby. Luckily, Auntie Amalia has five nice cats that Kasper befriends. The cats are several times more intelligent than ordinary animals. Amalia lets Kasper on to a big secret: they aren’t really cats, but five children that have fallen victim to an evil spell.
