The leader of the group is Ollie, a wise, spunky young beaver that insists on integrity. Second in command is a brazen coyote named Bud. His scruples are at times questionable, often conflicting with Ollies. But when an issue arises, Ollie maintains control. The last of the leaders is a former general for the Florida Alligator Homeland Security. The alligator, named Hector, challenges Ollie and Bud to a duel. Hector loses the battle, but Ollie calmly saves his life. There will normally be three short stories included with each book. This book, book 1, will contain three short stories. The first begins with General Hector- the second subbook will involve a huge sixteen-feet python named Thunder. The third and last subbook will describe the rescue of an enormous boar named Papa Boar. Papa, weighing close to six hundred pounds, had become mired in swamp mud. Ollie, with assistance from the local alligators, conjures up a successful rescue plan, freeing the boar from drowning. Future stories include the discovery of a space vehicle and the containment of a large ocean oil release.
