Esio Trot, by Roald Dahl, is an entertaining story of an elderly man, his neighbour and a tortoise. Mr Hoppy is a retired bachelor, who for many years has held a secret love for his neighbour, Mrs Silver. Unfortunately for Mr Hoppy, Mrs Silver devotes her days to Alfie, her dearly loved pet tortoise. Mr Hoppy has tried to amass the courage to talk to Mrs Silver for a while; however his tongue-tied and shy nature often leaves him with disastrous attempts. Mrs Silver forever longs for Alfie to grow. With a mischievous idea in mind, Mr Hoppy plots to win the heart of the beloved Mrs Silver.
Illustrated by Quentin Blake, Esio Trot is a funny, engaging story which can entertain young children and adults, alike.
