This review is from: Esio Trot (Puffin Fiction) (Paperback)
Plot: Mr. Hoppy lived in a flat. So did Mrs. Silver - the love of his life. Mr. Hoppy wanted to marry Mrs. Silver but he was too nervous. Find out how one small tortoise brings them together...
Fact: As well as being an author, Roald Dahl was an inventor - he actually invented the tortoise-catcher in the story but he used it to pick up things because he had back pains. Plus, Roald Dahl had two children and when they were small, they kept one or two tortoises in the garden!
Rating and recommendation: I would rate this brilliant book 7/ 10; I would recommend this perfect paperback to all Roald Dahl fans.
