Chuck and Dakota win a chance to visit the studio of reclusive artist and storyteller Norman Redmane, the creator of IncrediBull, a cowmic book about a flying supercow from beyond the moon. But during the calves’ visit, Norman gets bonked on the head...HARD. When he comes to, bad news: he thinks he IS IncrediBull. Worse news: he thinks Dakota is his superstrong sidekick, Fantasti-Calf.
What price would you pay for fame? Scriptwriter Talia knows ambition: she sees it in the mirror every day. But working with the world’s biggest divas should come with a health-warning. And when she finds herself in actress Tamara’s bad books, her own claws don’t look so sharp anymore...
Bermooda is a tropical island that is undiscovered by the outside world and is primarily populated by walking, talking cows of human intelligence. The cows came to the island hundreds of years ago by a ship carrying livestock that wrecked upon the shoals around the southern tip of the island. They have since formed their own quaint, mootopian tropical island society. Life is good on Bermooda, and the residents are mostly content to be unknowing of and unknown to the world beyond their horizons. Bermooda has no “outsiders,” and most prefer to keep it that way. That is, until Chuck ventures into the boneyard alone and discovers a young human boy who has been washed up unconscious on the sandbar! The young boy’s name is Dakota and he doesn’t seem as scary as Chuck thought humans would be. Chuck decides to “cow-mouflage” Dakota to pass as a bovine in town. Dakota and Chuck become fast friends, but trouble is brewing and Dakota’s true identity is at risk of being discovered. In the end, Chuck’s family adopts Dakota as their own calf.
When Chuck and Dakota find a magic seashell complete with a wish-granting genie inside, their first wish is for a never-ending supply of chocolate-covered bananas. But when Dakota wishes to become a REAL cow so he doesn’t have to wear his cowmouflage anymore, things get messy and the residents of Bermooda mistake him for an imposter! The boys soon discover that the magic seashell is having some fun with them by creating panic and havoc across the island. Can Chuck and Dakota work together to get everything back to normal before all the cows go mad?
