Toad Rage - Toad Series #1 (Morris Gleitzman)

Toad Rage - Toad Series #1
Morris Gleitzman

Blurb: 'Uncle Bart,' said Limpy. 'Why do humans hate us?' Uncle Bart looked down at Limpy, and smiled fondly. 'Stack me, Limpy,' he chuckled, 'you are an idiot.'

Uncle Bart reckons humans don't hate cane toads, but Limpy knows they do. He's spotted the signs. The cross looks. The unkind comments. The way they squash cane toads with their cars.

Limpy is desperate to save his family from ending up as placemats. Somehow he must make humans see how nice cane toads really are. Risking everything, he sets off on a journey that is mucus-chillingly dangerous and wart-tingling daring. It's also very funny.
