I'm a fan of all Roald Dahl books. Super creative and entertaining. 62 pages, so a very quick read both aloud and alone. Esio Trot is a love story about two people and a tortoise. "After all, everyone knows the way to a woman't heart is through her tortoise."

This is probably the cutest Dahl book out there. Do yourself a favor and read this to your little ones.

Esio Trot is unlike any book I have ever read before. I really enjoyed how imaginative and different this book is. Once again, Roald Dahl has transported many readers into another world where anything can happen.

Esio Trot is a really good book. Good for people who like tortoises and Roald Dahl is a great author.

I read most of this book myself - it is a big book. I am five.

I am going to start reading Charlie and the chocolate factory next.

I love everything by this author. It is good for big and little children.
