When a sky calf visits the Hospital for Magical Beasts out of the blue, Dr Astrid tries to diagnose the newcomer and apply her usual treatments. But the sky calf doesn’t respond and it isn’t clear what is wrong. How can Astrid nurse the sky calf back to full health? A sensitive story about how empathy and compassion can help make a real difference.
There are big grammar issues in this book, like “Certain she can figure it out, Dr Atrid get to work” instead of “got to work,” for example. I think the overall story, message, and illustrations are cute, but I have a hard time reading it with the text.
