Esio Trot - Tortoise in reverse!
on 23 March 2015
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 ! :)
