Review

"In this delightful story Roald Dahl gives us a very unhero-like hero; he his an average man who has to use his intelligence to get what he wants. Readers will laugh out loud when they realize what Mr. Hopper is up to, and they will be interested to find out if his rather devious scheme is going to work out" (Through The Looking Glass) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Absolutely superb book and one that can be read by children and adults alike. Having watched the movie with Dustin Hoffman and Judie Dench and thoroughly enjoyed it was keen to read this. This is probably one of the only books I have come across so far of Roald Dahl's with a romantic element to it. I kept wondering what Mrs Silver what have done if she had known the truth of how her tortoise Alfie had increased in size ! :)

The best book that I had ever read was called ESIO TROT by Roald Dahl. It had a lot of humour in it and a bit of romance. I read this book in my school library. This book is about an old man who seems to like Mrs Silver but just cannot say how he feels about her. But eventually he gets married to her due to a little bit of help from a tortoise and a bit of sneakiness. You should read this book because it will put a smile on your face and laughter in your life!

This takes no time at all to read
You're done in half an hour
It shows how far a man will go
to prove he has some power
To win the love of Mrs. S.
He pulls a clever ruse
If he can make her tortoise grow
He knows she won't refuse
Tortoises with matching shells
He plays his clever game
It takes an awful lot of work
To win his dizzy dame
ESIO TROT (spelled backwards please)
Gets larger as he'd said
And when he even shrinks it down
He gets inside her head
The moral of this leery tale's
"All's fair in love and war"
If you really want your lady's heart
Then it's worth cheating for

I think this is an excellent story because I read it in two nights as it is short, but it has a good beginning and a good end. Another good story from Roald Dahl !

I enjoyed this book.6-10 year old's would enjoy this book the most.My favorite character was Mr Hoppy because he was very clever tricking Mrs Silver by putting a different tortoise and pretending it was the same one and in the end Mr Hoppy got what he wanted. By Adam aged 8.
