Review submitted by Victor, Year 5

This book is a bit funny and it also has a happy ending. It’s about a lonely man, Mr. Hoppy and Mrs Silver who also lives alone. Mr Hoppy loves Mrs Silver but doesn’t say anything because he’s shy. MrsSilver has a pet tortoise called Alfie. She wants Alfie to grow bigger. Mr Hoppy pretends he has a magic spell to make Alfie bigger. (It’s a fake magic spell!)
