Jan. 25 2005
In the hysterically funny sequel to Toad Rage, Limpy is 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 him the rest of his life, but his plans are waylaid when he’s kidnapped by some sinister-looking humans and tossed into a bucket. Will Limpy be able to save cane toads? Will he be able to find toad heaven? First he has to get out of the bucket. . . .

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6 - In this sequel to Toad Rage (Random, 2004), a young Australian cane toad longs to find a place where his family can live safely from the humans who seem to delight in squashing them. After an encounter with a conservationist, Limpy mistakenly believes that he has been injected with a virus that will wipe out his species. Hearing stories of a fabled "national park" where living things are protected, he sets out, hoping to find this refuge for his family before he dies. This is not a philosophical animal quest in the mold of Richard Adams's Watership Down (Scribner, 1974), but a rather darkly comic fantasy. Limpy and his two traveling companions - his slow, pugnacious cousin and his timid little sister - are a scruffy but oddly endearing crew. He is the brains of the outfit - a somewhat reluctant leader who manages to guide the others through encounters with militant fire ants, crocodiles, and a boatload of tourists. The often-raucous dialogue includes lots of body humor and gross-out descriptions of toad diet and personal habits. Even death is a frequent source of amusement, from the toads' eerie use of a flattened relative as an insect trap to the companions' unsettling experiences among stuffed souvenir cane toads in a gift shop. Readers will appreciate the combination of rowdy humor and adventure as well as the emphasis on individual courage and achievement. - Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as awesome as the first book! Aug. 30 2005
By Sugarmag151 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is every bit as funny as TOAD RAGE, the first book featuring Limpy. I laughed out loud at Limpy's hysterical antics, while at the same time learning about leadership and ecology.

Toad heaven was a good book it had a whole lot of comedy and dangers.It is a good book if yoou like animals or you have read one of the other cane toad books.The only bad thing about it is that it dosent have a good ending but of course there is a sequal besides that its a good book.
