Product Description

As seen on TV at Christmas! Is it the mad plot, the cute tortoises or Quentin Blake’s colour pictures? What’s your best bit? The master of funny makes tortoises super-cool in this cheeky tale. You’ll be tickled right out of your shell. Shy Mr Hoppy, a retired bachelor, harbours a secret passion for the lovely Mrs Silver. Sadly, she lavishes all her affection on Alfie: her pet tortoise! So Mr Hoppy dreams up a daring plan to win the love of his lady. It involves a cryptic riddle and 140 tortoises. What could possibly go wrong?
