Here is Tyler's written entry:

The book he has chosen is ESIO TROT by Roald Dahl.
It is about a man called Mr Hoppy  who like the lady  who lived below called Mrs Silver.  
Mrs Silver only had time for her tortoise so Mr Hoppy made a plan so he could get to meet her.
Mr Hoppy told her he knew how to make her tortoise grow by saying these words to it "ESIO TROT     TEG REGGIB " but this was just TORTOISE GET BIGGER backwards.
Tyler loved this book because it has a happy ending and is entertaining he liked the parts where the words are spelt backwards EVERYONE would like this book even the Adult
TYLER  gives this book 5 STARS
