“‘Esio Trot’, it’s Tortoise spelt backwards”

This is yet another wonderful story from Roald Dahl - this time of middle-aged love thanks to some turtles and some clever swapping by Mr. Hoppy. I am sure that he and Mrs. Silver are perfect for each other and happy that Alfie found a new home. This is a story that you can read in about 30 minutes to your child and it is a pure delight for both you and your kid!

Heartwarming and lovely story

This book is filled with a very lovely and heartwarming story. The story is about Mr. Hoppy who likes Mrs. Silver, needs to win her heart, and one of the ways to win her heart is to help taking care of Mrs. Silver's turquoise, Alfie. A lovely and interesting story about them and very recommended.
