Kody the Kodiak Bear feels sad as the seasons change and the long nights of winter descend upon his arctic home. Fortunately, he meets Bobbi the Blue Footed Boobie who has been blown off course from the Galapagos Islands. She tells Kody about her home at the equator where the days never get shorter. They decide to take a journey. Rather than go on foot as their friends the caribou suggest, they find a school bus and gather up more friends to come along. When pulled over by the police, they are informed that they cannot drive to an island. But they don’t despair, they are introduced to Sergeant Marge and her large garbage barge. Sadly they get stuck in their bus on the barge in the great garbage patch. But Don Basura, a dealer of detritus, for a small fee offers them a way to escape. With the help of Pat the whale and the pirate crabs they inflate a crashed spy balloon and float up into the clouds. An in-flight meal delivered by Pelican Pizza is served before they arrive at their destination. After many weeks of enjoying sunshine every day and playing on the beach everyday and the sun setting at the same time every day, Kody becomes restless with equatorial equanimity. He glimpses the north star on the far horizon and a longing for his home in the north awakens within him.
