Mr Hoppy is in love with Mrs Silver. But she only has eyes for Alfie, her pet tortoise. How can Mr Hoppy ever compete with such a rival? He comes up with a plan to win his lady’s love, but will he succeed? What’s to become of Alfie?
Esio Trot by Roald Dahl – the world’s NUMBER ONE storyteller.
High up in a tall building lives Mr Hoppy all alone.
Downstairs lives Mrs Silver. Mr Hoppy loves her. And Mrs Silver loves her tortoise, Alfie. Oh, if only Mr Hoppy could perform some great feat that would make him a hero in her eyes! Then one day his mind goes click and an amazing idea rushes into his head.
With the help of a magical spell, some cabbage leaves and one hundred and forty tortoises, can shy Mr Hoppy win Mrs Silver’s heart?
And now you can listen to ESIO TROT ( with THE GIRAFFE AND THE PELLY AND ME) and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry – plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios!
And look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.
