9780141318769: Toad Away

Limpy is fed up of seeing his relatives run over and when he hears of a place in the Amazon, where human and toad live together in harmony, he resolves to find this place for himself and to take his cousin Goliath with him. The two toads make their bumpy way to the Amazonian jungle via the claws of a migratory bird and the underside of an aeroplane seat. But the jungle is not the Utopia that Limpy had imagined and it takes the advice of some Amazonian cane toads and one wise man to finally find the secret of a harmonious life with humans!

About the Author:

Morris Gleitzman was born in Lincolnshire and moved to Australia in his teens. He worked as a paperboy, a shelf-stacker, a frozen chicken thawer, an assistant to a fashion designer and more before taking a degree in Professional Writing at Canberra College and becoming a writer. He has written for TV, stage, newspapers and magazines but is best known for his hugely successful children's books including Two Weeks With the Queen, Bumface and Once.

From AudioFile:

Limpy the cane toad continues his persistent efforts to teach humans not to hate his species. Limpy keeps dead "rellies" (relatives) stacked up in his room, much to the chagrin of his mother, who would prefer a clean room. Embarking on a heroic expedition, Limpy hops (pun intended) planes from his home in Australia to the Amazon, in search of the ancient secret of keeping the peace with humans. Remarkable encounters delight the listener--especially with the carrier pigeons, who reluctantly carry amphibian passengers but refuse to tolerate their complaints. Author Morris Gleitzman is a talented reader who has a twinkle in his voice. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
