Editorial Reviews

Award-winning children’s author Morris Gleitzman returns to the world of the fearless cane toad in this hilarious adventure. Unlike most of his friends and family, Limpy the Toad envisions a world where humans and toads can live in peace, free from the constant threat of being squashed by giant feet and even bigger truck tires. With Gleiztman handling the performance himself, Toad Away jumps to life and Limpy’s international journey from Australia to the Amazon quickly becomes a comical and touching story about differences and acceptance.

Publisher's Summary

Limpy the toad has a vision. A world where cane toads and humans play mudslides together and help each other with the shopping. But how does a young cane toad discover the ancient secret of living in peace with humans? First he has to dodge the killer trucks and supermarket trolleys. Then he has to stop his cousin declaring war on the entire human race.

Too much fun

I was looking for an audiobook to listen to with my nephews, but after 15 minutes I had to listen to it for myself ahead of time. I've been in tears from laughing too hard more than once.

The story's great, the narration is great, the side jokes for parents are great - this is the funniest kid's audio I've ever heard. Be forewarned there are quite a few queasy references to toads flattened on the highway (the hero keeps his dried, flattened relatives in his room as an homage), slugs, intestines and the neccessity to pee in self-defense - but anyone who's ever been near real toads will appreciate that these biological facts are celebrated in such creative and hilarious detail. I have a feeling this aunt will be getting the entire series....
