Puffins Karlo and Luddi are twins. Every autumn Karlo flies off to warmer countries with all the other migratory birds. Luddi stays behind, because he is too scared to fly or swim. But fear of flying is no good for a puffin; Luddi realises this one Spring when all the migratory birds return with out twinbroter Karlo. Conquering his fear of flying he sets off in a homemade dirigible, crossing the oceans to find his brother.
