Toad Away

Written by Morris Gleitzman

Toad Away Synopsis

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!
