Bobby is in hospital and asks if he can draw upon the walls of his hospital room after having a dream about a magical world called Alder. When he finishes his painting that night, he finds that he is able to walk through his drawing into a magical world where he meets a talking dog, fights a monster that is destroying Alder and is told by the Aldermen that he must return to his world in order to spread an important message and prevent further danger to Alder.
A contribution from the sale of each copy of Alder will go directly to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, helping it to continue to deliver the fantastic service it provides to children.
