Norm is frustrated. He loves his role as king but he misses spending quality time with his family. And they miss him. The kids resent his role because he doesn’t have time to play with them any more.
While preparing for the winter jubilee in which the king must present his crown to the kingdom, it gets stolen. Who would steal the king’s crown? If word got out it would cause chaos in the kingdom. With some help from his new friend Tiny, a killer whale, Norm learns about an ice ship that was in the vicinity at the time of the theft. So, in true Norm fashion, he prepares to go after the ship, which is heading for China.
A misunderstanding has Norm’s family thinking they are all going on a family vacation, and Norm doesn’t want his kids to be disappointed. So off they go in search of the stolen crown without his family knowing the true reason for the trip.
They discover an amazing city built by an inventive White Tiger who invites the family to be his guest. His twins, Pete and Repete, are in the same boat as Norm’s kids.
