            Absolutely terrible. Not only does Mrs Silver opt to be a slave, but Mr Hoppy actually steals her tortoise and replaces him to selfishly gain Mrs Silvers' affection, afterward giving Alfie (the tortoise) to a local pet shop and not ever telling Mrs Silver what he did, even after they marry. Theft, mild misogyny, animal cruelty, jealousy and ignorance... It's a wonder it was ever published, but I guess that it was before people figured out that animals had feelings and women weren't daft. To this day I'm not sure why people like it.🤔

                    I like this book because like all Ronald Dahl books it is awesome and nice and real and cool and I would read it again if I only owned the library I got it from. I can't imagine how Ronald Dahl came up with these words they are so good.
