Roald Dahl, Esio Trot - Mr. Hoppy is in love with Mrs....”

Written on: 03/10/2004 by gemmaberry (1 review written)

Good Points
Adults and older children will appreciate Dahl's superior storytelling skills, and will chuckle at Blake's animated, cartoony drawings.

Bad Points
The book's length and subtle humor make it less suitable for beginning readers.

General Comments
Roald Dahl, Esio Trot - Mr. Hoppy is in love with Mrs. Silver, but her heart belongs to Alfie, her pet tortoise. Mr. Hoppy is too shy to approach Mrs. Silver, until one day he comes up with a brilliant idea to win her heart. If Mr. Hoppy's plan works, Mrs. Silver will certainly fall in love with him. But it's going to take one hundred and forty tortoises, an ancient spell, and a little bit of magic.
