Summary
Toad surprise: Limpy has a dream. A dream where cane toads and humans live happily together. Surely, this time Limpy will be able to show humans how nice cane toads can be? After all, it is Christmas. And isn't Christmas a time of peace and goodwill to all men? And cane toads? A hilarious story of one cane toad's quest to experience the true meaning of Christmas. 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.' 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. Toad away: 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. Toad heaven: 'Ouch, ' said Limpy. 'Why's my back hurting?' A horrible thought hit him. Perhaps it was a fork wound. Perhaps while he was unconscious the human had tried to eat him. He looked around. 'Stack me, ' said Limpy. All he could see was blue plastic. Limpy's on a quest to find toad heaven. A place where cane toads won't be blown up with bike pumps or bashed over the head with folding chairs. Limpy's determined to find this place if it takes the rest of his life. But first he has to get out of the bucket
