Review : Esio Trot (The word tortoise backwards) I recently read a book called Esio Trot by Roald Dahl. It was a hilarious and let me tell what it is all about. The book is about a lonely man called Mr Hoppy. He lived in a tall building. Downstairs, there lived a lady called Mrs Silvers whom he was madly in love with. Sadly, she paid no attention to him as she gave all her love to her pet tortoise, Alfie. Oh!! How much she loved him but she was very sad that Alfie would never grow bigger. Day after day he would still be the same size. She would often have conversations with Mr Hoppy from the balcony. One day while she was talking with him and Mr Hoppy said that he knew how to make tortoises grow bigger. I will not give away how but if you want to know then you will just have to read the book.
