Esio Trot

screen-shot-2016-11-10-at-7-34-22-pmEsio Trot is a children’s novel written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, published in 1990. It is one of his last books.

It is a story about a very shy man called Mr. Hoppy who is in love with Mrs. Silver, his neighbour. However, 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 over. Mr. Hoppy’s plan requires a hundred and forty tortoises, some magic and great patience! Mrs. Silver will certainly fall in love with him if his plan works. This is a must read! A funny and cute book full of love and cleverness, with a happy ending! 

A great gift for boys and girls.

Till next time…
