    I read this book for pleasure and I have to say, I had such a fantastic time reading it. This story is about a man named Mr. Hoppy who is in love with another lady named Ms. Silver. She is his next door neighbor. He does all these things to please her. This story is a wonderful story about love.

            This is a hilariously funny book by the best author ever, Roald Dahl. The book is one of his best, but actually all of his books are good!

              This is another great book carefully written by Rolad Dahl. Here's a little hint about the story: Look at the title and read it backwards.

                Roald Dahl is the best author there is when it comes to imagination and humor. I recomend any of his books.

                  This book is about a man who loves a lady named Miss Silver, but she is always too interested in her pet tortoise. The man has an idea and tells the lady some "magic backwards words" and tricks the lady into thinking that the man is helping the tortoise grow. Soon Miss Silver falls in love with him.
