Esio Trot. Who would have thought of such title. This books is simple and sweet.
Mr. Hoppy is in love with his neighbour Mrs Silver, who loves her tortoise very much.
Being a man, he would do anything to win Mrs Silver's heart. They both live in the same apartment.
He lives on top of her unit. Everyday he will find a reason to be at the balcony just to get the chance to talk to her. Since she is so eager to see her pet grows bigger, Mr. Hoppy came up with the idea just how it can "grow" bigger. After putting his creative mind at work, he gets what he wants.
An absolute good read for all ages. I first read this many years back and will always remember the title; Esio Trot. =)
