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. When sky calf improves just by sitting in a calm environment, surrounded by friends, Astrid learns that there is more than one way to help someone to heal. A sensitive story about how empathy and compassion can help make a real difference.
