"Stack me!" Listeners of all ages will be doubled over with laughter as they make their way through this comical tale of Limpy the cane toad. Toad Rage, performed with an unstoppable energy from the author Morris Gleitzman, is the funny and endearing story of a little toad's quest to find out if humans hate toads. Packed full of adventure, mischief, and amusing Australian slang, Toad Rage is sure to have everyone, herpetologist or not, smiling until the very end. So hop along with Limpy and his friends, as he tries to figure out the cane toad's most pressing question.
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. It's also very funny. This is the epic story of a slightly-squashed young cane toad's quest for the truth.
