ROALD DAHL Esio Trot
Mr Hoppy is in love with his neighbour, Mrs Silver; but she is in love with someone else—Alfie, her pet tortoise. With all her attention focused on Alfie, Mrs Silver doesn’t even know Mr Hoppy is alive. And Mr Hoppy is too shy to even ask Mrs Silver over for tea. Then one day Mr Hoppy comes up with a brilliant idea to get Mrs Silver's attention. If Mr Hoppy's plan works, Mrs Silver will certainly fall in love with him. After all, everyone knows the way to a woman’s heart is through her tortoise.

Roald Dahl The world's NUMBER ONE storyteller!
"I love it! The kids thought it was hilarious because it was about a man being in love (cue the 30 voices shouting "yuk!") but they also thought it was super happy at the end. Such a lovely, harmless little story and it was short enough that we could read it in only 3 sittings (with my 6-7-year-olds, so we can't sit on the carpet for too long!). Would definitely recommend it!"
