Did you catch it on TV at Christmas? Dahl’s dippy epic story of tortoises and true love. It’s so funny you’ll be tickled right out of your shell. Shy Mr Hoppy, a retired bachelor, harbours a secret passion for his neighbour: the lovely Mrs Silver. Sadly, she lavishes all her affection on Alfie, her pet tortoise! So Mr Hoppy dreams up a brave and wild plan to win the love of his lady. And it works: it’s won our undying love as well.
