Product Description


"... almost 100 percent of your students will want to hear the book again." --Kirkus Reviews "... crackerjack dialogue ... loose, humorous cartoons ... Children in foodie households accustomed to discussions of how dishes are prepared will take to this and they'll probably enjoy Toad-in-a-Hole, too." --Publishers Weekly "Bailey's dialogue is snappy and amusing, and the illustrations recall the scrappy TV-animation style of Chuck Jones." --The New York Times

Linda Bailey is the author of the series about the mischevious mutt, Stanley. Stanley's adventures are all about how to get into and out of trouble- and Bailey is never afraid to go a little darker than most picture books would.

In this book the ennui-ridden Fox gets new culinary inspiration from some new cookbooks (the bookstore owner giving Fox the stinkeye for trying before buying is a favourite scene). This means he's off to find some young toads for dinner. But young toads mean one thing - a protective mama toad. Will Fox get his delicious dinner? Will Mamma Toad sacrifice herself to save her alieneseque young? There's real tension before we get the answers.

The inclusion of a recipeat the back (toad is luckily scratched off the ingredient list) is a great addition, and my kids had fun cutting holes in the bread for our version of Toad in the Hole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cute June 14 2014
By Soul Thirsty - Published on Amazon.com
I checked this out from the library maybe a year ago and my 3 year old daughter still remembers it. Besides the fact that we like stories about foxes trying to eat animals and getting deterred (we love the big bad wolf!), this was especially cute because it has a simple recipe included on it and my daughter enjoyed eating it.

I enjoyed this book as much as my little nephew (for whom I purchased it). It is wonderfully imaginative and the recipe at the end is a cute twist to a practical meal. The illustrations are very clear and adorable. I purchased the hard back copy.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book July 31 2013
By Allison Dollar - Published on Amazon.com
I loved this book. It's a standard mother-saves-kids story, but the mother is so calm and funny that it doesn't come off as run of the mill. Add to that pictures that are full of lively baby toads that will make the kids laugh and you've got a book that every kid should read.
