Not your everyday picture book about being sick 

Iben is seriously unwell, and needs to go to hospital to get emergency treatment. On her first day there, she meets Malla the Baldie. Malla wants to show Iben around, and together they journey to some of the secret, magical rooms inside the hospital. Perhaps it is possible to still have a wicked time… even when you’re sick?

Baldie is a book about lolly-flavoured flowers, disco music, and all the wondrous magic that springs from making new friends.
