The Splendid and Extraordinary Life of Beautimus Potamus
- By: Peggy A. Wheeler
- Narrated by: Kelley Hazen
- Length: 12 hrs and 47 mins
The mystical green planet of Rendaz is home to devout goddess worshiper and university professor, middle-aged Beautimus Potamus - who also happens to be a hippo plagued by hot flashes and poor self-esteem. Beautimus forms an alliance with Samuel S. Goodwings, a younger womanizing, atheist praying mantis. When these two are together, life morphs from the mundane into the fantastic. Our unlikely duo solve mysteries, bring a murderer to justice, and even help end a war, while experiencing their own trials, triumphs, and tragedies.

It was a fantastical experience listening to this book. Ms. Hazen created a completely different, rich and colorful world. All the different voices were beautiful - hilarious at times, dark and poignant at others. So beautifully done. A wonderful piece taken to another level with the narrator's voice. Thank you.
