When he finds yet another pile of squashed relatives lying on the highway Limpy (a slightly squashed cane toad) is determined to save as many of his remaining relatives from a similar fate as he can. Because this is Morris Gleitzman who is writing, fans will not be surprised to read that this rescue involves 15 minutes of prime time TV, a cooking show and a surprise ingredient. A really good read aloud.
