"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.

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
