The toad has long suffered from image problems. By the time of Shakespeare its ugliness was proverbial and its reputation for being poisonous hardly helped. Yet Professor DeGraaff makes a convincing and entertaining case for these much-abused creatures as deserving of our respect and admiration. He includes not only toad science but also an exploration of the toad as a literary and artistic subject, mythological symbol and threatened species. The result is a treat for bufophiles everywhere.
