Toad Rage

Publisher: Penguin

Review

Limpy, the cane toad, deeply disturbed that motorists appear to swerve their cars specifically to run toads over, is determined to put a stop to this needless loss of life. He sets out on a perilous journey to try to persuade humans that cane toads are loveable, friendly creatures. He decides to endear himself to the public by becoming a mascot for the Australian Games, so travels south to begin negotiations with the Games organisers. However, the way is fraught with danger, and he often has to limp hurriedly away from the clutches of angry security guards and salivating dogs!

This hilarious and original story is superbly written.
