Bunsen isn't your typical schoolmate. The new student at Muckledunk Middle School is not just a beast but the first of his kind in an otherwise all-human school. As a beast ambassador, Bunsen is on a mission to show his peers that his species isn't as different from humans as they might think. Bunsen learns to survive in the human world with help from Mikey, his new BFF who teaches him such basics as how to do homework, and eat in the cafeteria. Curious Bunsen wants to learn everything he can about the people he now shares a planet with. Together, he and Mikey want to show the world that beasts and humans can live together in peace -- as long as you don't feed beets to Bunsen. If you give him beets, he'll go crazy and try to eat you. You've been warned.
