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-tinglingly daring. This is the epic story of a slightly squashed young cane toad's quest for the truth.

Professional reviews

"Limpy the Australian cane toad embarks on a quest to find out why humans hate his kind and what he can do to change their minds. His journey takes him to the Olympics, where, after many mishaps, he discovers a solution. Bolinda will continue to impress American listeners with this title. Morris Gleitzman is an enthusiastic storyteller whose voice radiates a kindness that will attract young listeners. He gives each animal--from slug to mosquito to cane toad--real and distinct personalities. In addition, the sound effects at the end of each tape or disc make this title pure fun. J.M.S.
