The alpine herdsman on Engstligenalp has injured himself and Globi is standing in for him. There is a lot to learn and many new things to discover. He spreads cow dung on the pastures and drags huge bales of hay. He also learns to yodel and how to swing a flag. And he deals with cheeky cows and meets dwarves and a giant. Together with Globi, the children learn a lot about living and working on the alp.
