Summary

Esio Trot, a classic Roald Dahl story, is brought to life in this audiobook edition by Sir Quentin Blake.

Mr Hoppy loves Mrs Silver. Mrs Silver loves Alfie the tortoise. Sometimes Mr Hoppy wishes he could become a tortoise. Until one day he finds a way to win Mrs Silver's heart, with the help of a little magic and some cabbage.

Quentin Blake is the award-winning English illustrator internationally known for his long partnership with Roald Dahl. He has also collaborated with many authors such as Joan Aiken, Michael Rosen, David Walliams, and John Yeoman, illustrated books by Dr Seuss and created picture books of his own. He was appointed first-ever Children's Laureate in 1999 and in 2013 was knighted for his services to illustration.

Lovely story. Loved the ending.

The performance of this story is wonderful and story is so lovely especially at the end. Worries don't matter no more when happiness and love fill the little creature's journey of life.

Esio Trot

I loved it because it had a happy ending. The best bit was when they got married. I lived all the three characters because they were all so nice. I also liled that there were no bad bits. Amélie, 5 years old
