I didn't know this tale in frensh. I think the tittle is "Un amour de tortue", but I have ever read it. So I began this book, without knowing the story and I loved it ! It is very funny and interesting ! There are a little suspens. When we begin, we can't stop to read ! It is simple, but I was not bored ! I laugh a lot !
The characters are interesting, but I don't agree with Mr Hoppy's philosophie. He cheated, and I don't bear with this kind of person ! However, it's funny and a tale so... It's for children ! Mrs Silver is a little naive ! It's a perfect tale for children. I don't understand all the word, but it's relatively easy to follow the story !
A very good tale !
