About Us

by Phil Amara and Tina Pratt

Calamari Burger Editor's Pick

smart kids. cool stuff. new world.

Four genius middle-school kids leave their life of homework and school buses to transport to adventures on a planet gone wild. This is a strange, primordial world with a talking T-Rex, mutated monsters, and five-eyed sharks. It’s up to the quartet to put the planet’s crazy ecology right, while testing their inventions and proving their friendships in ways they could never imagine. Join naturalist Fuse, oceanographer Dove, inventive Bass, and inquisitive Art as they unlock the secrets of PLANET!
