From the Publisher:

Jennifer Murdley had no idea what she was getting into the day she bought the big toad from the strange man who ran Elives' Magic Shop. The thing didn't even start talking to her until she had it out of the shop.

And once the toad did start to talk, it still kept a lot of secrets. So Jennifer didn't find out about his strange birth...or the treasure hidden in his forehead...or the witch who was out to get him...until she and her friends were in more trouble than they had ever dreamed of!

From the Inside Flap:

Read by the author and the Words Take Wing TM Repertory Company
Two cassettes / 2 hours 52 mins.

As if she didn't have trouble enough after her classmates discovered she has worn her brother's underwear to school (oh, the teasing, the humiliation!) Jennifer Murdley has just stumbled into Mr. Elives' Magic Shop, where she buys a toad named Bufo.  Of course, the odds of buying a normal toad in that shop are zero, as Jennifer finds out when Bufo starts to talk to her.

As it turns out, talking is the least of the toad's strange talents.  Before Jennifer's adventures with him are over, she will have to mend an ancient tragedy, save her little brother from being a toad himself, and (hardest of all) come face to face with the fact that in a world obsessed with beauty, she is anything but.  At least, not on the outside...
