The alpine herdsman on Engstligenalp has injured himself and Globi is standing in for him. There is a lot 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.
