Toad Rage

“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.”

Why do people hate toads so much? Limpy, a slighty squashed cane toad, just can’t get to grips with the idea. The other cane toads say “that’s life” and let themselves get flattened, but Limpy isn’t like that. He wants answers! So he decides to take things into his own hands – and sets off on a life-changing journey across Australia, on a mission to change the minds of the whole human race! Hilarious, moving and outrageous, this adventure will sweep you from the dusty outback tracks to the dangerous streets of the Big City, on a journey into the unknown that you’ll never forget.

    One of Australia’s, and now the world’s, best-known and loved children’s authors, Morris Gleitzman tackles tough subjects in a funny and offbeat way. He has never set out to write “issues books” and says that his writing is as much for himself as for his readers.


    Morris has won many awards in Australia, including the YABBA award for Bumface and Toad Rage, and won the 2013 Redbridge Book Award for After.
