I thought the title was smart because tortoise backwards is esio trot. My favourite character is Mr. Hoppy because he is very good at keeping a secret. I would recommend this book to quite a few people but not all.

Its a fiction story by Roald Dahl. This book has an interesting plot when Mr Hoppy buys 140 tortoises and fits them in one room.The language is simple to understand. This book is about Alfie the tortoise. Mr Hoppy swaps 8 tortoises to find out which one has a larger shell for Mrs Silver's tortoise while she's at work so she does not know that Mr Hoppy is exchanging the tortoises.The last tortoise tortoise number 8 weighs 27 ounces.
