It’s a warm spring evening and a toad is leaving her burrow in a garden log pile to begin a long, long walk. On her journey she escapes from a hungry young fox, a grass snake on the look out for a meal and she must even cross a busy road, avoiding the night-time traffic! Along with hundreds of other toads the little creature is heading for a pond where she will find a mate and lay her eggs. With fantastic up-close photos, this book gives orange-level readers an in-depth look at the life cycle of toads and the everyday lives of these secretive amphibians.
