Mr. Hoppy is in love with his neighbor, 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.

I'm a fan of all Roald Dahl books. Super creative and entertaining. 62 pages, so a very quick read both aloud and alone. Esio Trot is a love story about two people and a tortoise. "After all, everyone knows the way to a woman't heart is through her tortoise."

This is probably the cutest Dahl book out there. Do yourself a favor and read this to your little ones.

Esio Trot is unlike any book I have ever read before. I really enjoyed how imaginative and different this book is. Once again, Roald Dahl has transported many readers into another world where anything can happen.

Esio Trot is a really good book. Good for people who like tortoises and Roald Dahl is a great author.

I read most of this book myself - it is a big book. I am five.

I am going to start reading Charlie and the chocolate factory next.

I love everything by this author. It is good for big and little children.
