Esio Trot Audiobook Free
Esio Trot Audiobook is a wonderful and warm-hearted children’s audiobook written by British author Roald Dahl. Published in 1990, it was the last of Dahl’s books to be published in his lifetime.
This shorter audiobook (shorter when compared to other Roald Dahl’s Audiobooks) is a cute little story about loneliness; about elderly people still wanting love and having a life; about ingenuity.
Mr Hoppy loves Mrs Silver. Mrs Silver loves Alfie the tortoise. Sometimes Mr Hoppy wishes he could become a tortoise. Until one day he finds a way to win Mrs Silver’s heart, with the help of a little magic and some cabbage.
Quentin Blake is the award-winning English illustrator internationally known for his long partnership with Roald Dahl.

He was appointed first-ever Children’s Laureate in 1999 and in 2013 was knighted for his services to illustration.
There is such a simple, straightforward and very (grown up) human story at the heart of ‘Esio Trot Audiobook Mp3’ and it does feel somehow different from many other Dahl audiobooks in its nature.
The characters here are the key and are so well written. The humor in ‘Esio Trot’ is of a very gentle and affectionate kind. Narrated by Quentin Blake is a real treasure! Quentin really brings out the British charm of Dahl’s stories that your own voice in your head can’t quite do.
To call it a ‘feel-good’ novel would somehow belittle and stereotype this lovely book, but there is definitely something very heart-warming here about people, life and the human spirit.
