Overview

On the island of Mutasia, where everyone is a mixed-up mix of two or more different animals, being one-of-a-kind is just a way of life. But a funky, new fashion craze is sweeping the island, and everyone looks the same. Mutasians are wearing mooklings (moose-ducks) on their heads and calling them “Mookling Hats.” Figley is the only kid without one, and doesn’t feel like he fits in anymore. He tries as hard as he can to look like everybody else, but when he meets a little squonk (donkey-squid), everything changes. Maybe instead of blending in with the crowd, he could… STAND OUT!
