Summary

When Rebecca wades into the witch's pond after a row with her best friend Sarah, she meets a very unusual new friend – a huge, warty toad!

And Glubbslyme is no ordinary toad. Hundreds of years old, he can talk and – best of all – he can work magic. Maybe, just maybe, he can help Rebecca be best friends with Sarah again?

Critic reviews

"A brilliant writer of wit and subtlety." ( The Times)
"[Wilson] has a rare gift for writing lightly and amusingly about emotional issues." ( The Bookseller)
"Hugely popular with seven to ten year olds: [Wilson] should be prescribed for all cases of reading reluctance." ( The Independent on Sunday)

Glubby-Glubslyme

A hilarious book read so perfectly by Sani Toksvig. A genuinely funny story of a toad whose personality would make anyone smile!
