I liked this book because cool l would definitely recommend this book to someone else
I liked the tortoise because he was so cute.
I wasn’t very sure about this .
I would recommend this book to people who like tortoises
It was the cleverness of Mr Hoppy
In the story Mrs Silver has a tortoise called Alfie who she loves very much. By 1990, when Esio Trot was published, it was no longer possible to buy a tortoise in a local pet-shop due to a law that had been passed in order to protect the tortoises. Roald explained all this in the introduction to the story, saying: "The things you are going to read about in this story all happened in the days when anyone could go out and buy a nice little tortoise from a pet-shop."
I liked this book because of how many tortoises there are.Mr Hoppy plays a really good and funny trick on Mrs Silver.It has a happy ending.And what does esio trot mean?Read the book to find out!

I would recommend this book
I liked Alfie the best because he is a cute tortoise. I really liked this book.
I liked the ending and it was funny on how Mr Happy bought loads of tortoisee's.
The book was amazing. Mr Hoppy was the best as he was cheeky and witty.
Esio Trot is just a short book but I really enjoyed it. The characters were very likeable and Roald Dahl is a very clever writer that always makes his books funny. I liked that it had a happy ending, when Mr & Mrs Silver got married, but they also had to send the tortoise to the Pet Shop. It turned out ok because she had him for a very long time. It really made me want a tortoise!
I think this is a very good book because there is lots of detail and short but entertaining.
My favourite character is Mr hoppy because he seems like a nice person and a fun person.
I would recommend this to others.

Esio Trot is a very good book. It was interesting because Mr Hoppy brought a lot of tortoises to his house from the pet store just so he could make a girl’s wish come true.Soon near to the end of the book Mr Hoppy and Mrs Silver get married .
Very interesting story
