On the mystical green planet of Rendaz, devout Goddess worshiper and university professor, middle-aged Beautimus Potamus—who also happens to be a hippo plagued with hot flashes and poor self-esteem—forms an alliance with Samuel S. Goodwings, a younger womanizing, atheist praying mantis. When these two are together, life morphs from the mundane into the fantastic. Our unlikely duo solves mysteries, bring a murderer to justice, and even help end a war, while experiencing their own trials, triumphs, and tragedies. Often with humor, their situations and adventures parody Earth culture.
