Another hilarious and heart-warming story from Australia's funniest children's author.

Limpy has a vision. A world where cane toads and humans play mudslides together. And help each other with the shopping. And share their slug sauce and maggot moisturiser. 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. Oh, and he has to take a trip to the Amazon. The uplifting tale of one cane toad's heroic journey (with his sister and cousin) across oceans, continents and some really busy roads.

"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."
