There's something strange in the skies over Toad Hall - it's an airborne amphibian! Toad has a new paraglider but not the skill to control it. And when his haphazard flight - all recorded on his head-cam - reveals that whole swathes of the Wild Wood have vanished, it's up to Toad to catch the culprits!
With the help of Teejay, Ratty, and Mo, Mr Toad has launched his riskiest mission yet. Can he stop the environmentally unfriendly weasels, or will Operation Toad leave him dangling in danger? With outrageous antics from Mr Toad, action-packed adventure from the start, and stylish two-colour illustrations from Holly Swain that capture all the comedy, this is a fantastic package for young readers.

'What Tom has done is to keep the fun, the characters, the silliness and the light - but cast it all in a modern frame that really works. What I hope is that this is not a one-off ... the characters - young toad, mole and vole - the matriarchal badger - the evil empire of weasels and stoats - are all too good to be left with just the one outing ... more please!'
'Top-notch storytelling from Moorhouse and appealing, contemporary illustrations from Swain in a limited (toad) green palette.'
