Pete, King of the Jungle

Pate, viidakon kuningas

What would you do if your best friend were in serious trouble?

You’d do your best to help, of course. But what if being “in trouble” actually meant being in the world’s oldest jungle? Would you go? To help your friend?

Well, Pete would and he will. Afterall, it’s his beloved dog Totti who’s stuck on a mysterious ship that’s headed towards the Borneo jungle. Luckily, Senja-the-Adventurer joins his rescue team. And she always keeps her cool – even in the toughest situations.

Like she did in the Mulu caves. When an orangutan sped up the rescue team’s search hunt and seven million bats watched from above with their beady eyes.

During their rescue operation, Pete and Senja work out who is destroying the jungle and they even manage to save the world. It’s all in a day’s work for Pete.
