Overview

Toad Rage by Morris Gleitzman

Limpy's family reckons humans don't hate cane toads, but Limpy knows otherwise. 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 species from ending up as pancakes. Somehow he must make humans see how fabulous cane toads really are. Risking everything, he sets off on a wart-tinglingly dangerous and daring journey to . . . the Olympics?

This is the epic story of a slightly squashed young cane toad's quest for the truth.

This book is called Toad Rage. It is a really cool book. It is about cane toads that are trying too figure out why humans hate them. So this cane toad Limpy went to a gas station where a lot of people are at, so he can ask them why do you hate cane toads, but it took him 4 hours to get there because he has a crippled leg, that is why he is called limpy. If you read this i know you will like it,esspecially if you like toads or bugs you will really get into it. If you like it a lot you can buy or read the book Toad Heaven, it is the secquil to Toad Rage. You will really like it if you read it .

At parts it was good....but then it got kinda boring. Would recommend it for kids under 8, as they would have a hard time understanding.

This book is a hooker!! It's funny, interseting, and is just plain outstanding. I agree with Eoin Colfer ( I love his books too) Morris G. is a unique author. I loved Toad Rage!

The adventure about a cane toad and it's dim-witted cousin seems like an okay book, and it was. there was nothing special about it, although it was still enjoyable. it was funny and gross, so it's not really a must read, but still, it was pretty good.

Toad Rage by Morris Gleitzman rated 4 out of 5 stars ¿ Fascinating. Animal fight for survival. Can¿t stop flipping the pages.¿ The cover of the book got my attention for many reasons. It was bright and colourful and this made me think that it was an exciting, adventurous and non-stop action book. I am interested in animals so when I saw the toad at the front cover I was fascinated, instantly knowing that the book is about an animal or animals. Lastly, the title of the book ¿Toad Rage¿ showed that an animal is angry and is trying to do something about it. Once it got me thinking I just had to read and find out for myself. I thought the book would be about a little, unwelcome toad who goes on an adventure and meets new creatures who he makes friends with, and tries to find his way to a relative. Then he would figure out that he got lost and with the help of his new friends he would eventually find the home of his family. The book was kind of what I expected it to be. It was about a toad with an injury who was angry and tried to stop a disaster from happening. In the story there was a bit of cruelty involved as well. I still do feel the same about the book in a few ways. When I saw it I thought it might be a fun book to read and it was. I also imagined it looked a little strange and it did have some weird incidents but there were still lots of exciting parts to read. Lastly, it looked like a funny book and sometimes you would just need to read the part over again. Probably the only thing that changed my feelings about the book is that when I started reading it was a bit confusing but as the story went on it was an easy book to read and understand. I feel that the book was an interesting, action-filled and funny book, as I thought it would be from the start. The book ¿Toad Rage¿ is a heartwarming interesting fiction. The main character is Limpy, a cane toad who has one squished foot which was run over by a car, so he keeps running in circles. Goliath is Limpy¿s friend who goes on a journey with him and together they bond a stronger friendship. The story takes place in Australia first at the marsh, the home of the toads, and later in the city, Sydney, where the 2000 Summer Olympics were held. The story was about Limpy, a cane toad, who wants to figure out why humans hate them so much since they keep crushing them with their cars when crossing the street. Goliath and Limpy start on an adventure together trying to convince humans that they are cute by being added as a mascot for the Olympic Games like the koala, wombat and kookaburra. They both meet a girl who helps them reach their goal and the two of them help the girl fulfill her dream. The two brave toads come back to their home with a solution that will stop the squashing of cane toads. The author Morris Gleitzman grew up in England and then later moved to Australia at the age of sixteen. Morris Gleitzman has had many other jobs besides an author. He was once a frozen-chicken thawer, sugar-mill rolling-stock unhooker, fashion-industry trainee, department-store Santa, TV producer, newspaper columnist, and screenwriter. He had many weird and hilarious jobs that helped him become a comedy novel writer for kids. ¿Toad Rage¿ was his fourteenth book and it seems like there will be many more to come. After reading the story I had a new look on animals, especially the endangered ones, how they are fighting for survival every day and we are one of the reasons they could become extinct. I liked the book because it was funny and it showed some lessons you could learn, like do not take everything for granted. For example don¿t eat a lot at once or else you will get a tummy ache. I disliked the book because it seemed too easy to read and there wasn¿t much description. Overall I liked the book and I would recommend the book for ages 8-14. If you really liked ¿Toad Rage¿ there will
