Checker Tobi and Our Planet's Secret

Checker Tobi's greatest adventure begins on a pirate ship in the middle of the sea, where he finds a message in a bottle containing a riddle. If he's able to solve the riddle, he will reveal our planet's greatest secret. An exciting treasure hunt that brings Tobi across the globe is about to begin! Tobi climbs the crater of a fire-breathing volcano and dives side by side with a sea dragon in the Pacific Ocean. Together with climatologists, Tobi explores the most remote regions of the Arctic just to end up in India. He becomes a Bollywood star in Mumbai just before the monsoon transforms the mega metropolis. In the end Tobi realizes that this whole time the solution of the riddle was right before his eyes.
