Children travel with Detective Jarbo from New York City to San Francisco, California, where Dregco boards a cruise ship headed for Hawaii.  Once in Hawaii, the little green monster flies to Asia, but not before disappearing off the cruise ship onto a submarine.  Children will enjoy virtual travel using video, images, different modes of transportation and quizzes. 

The characters are in cartoon format, however, all travel videos are in real life format which creates a colorful, interesting and informative lecture.  Children will need to employ math and geography skills to help Detective Jarbo find Dregco.  The FBI is on the case as well, however, they don’t know Dregco is a shapeshifter.
