tobi & mobi dee – the book

For the last two years I have been working on my next book. It looks like it will be ready to be published in April or May this year.

Tobi & Mobi Dee – The Secret of the Arctic Ice – is a story about a young sailor Tobi and his best – whale – friend Mobi Dee. The two were born at the same time and have been traveling the Seven Seas ever since. While Tobi lives on his sailing boat SV Rainbowchaser, Mobi Dee swims along during their adventures.

Through a magic event in his childhood Tobi speaks “whalish” and is able to communicate with his best friend.

In this book Tobi and Mobi Dee get a request for help from their friend Franz, a one-tonne walrus, who lives in the Arctic Circle. Franz is worried about the amount of Ice that keeps on disappearing around his family home.

This is not just a story about two friends and their adventures but aims to educate young readers as they follow the story. Kids will learn about sailing, wind, weather and ocean related terms and are immersed in a story that uncovers climate change related issues and solutions.

The book is the result of bedtime stories I told my own kids that were deliberately spiked with some real life sailing and climate knowledge.
