Shy Mr. Hoppy devises a plan to win the heart of his true love by teaching her a spell to make her tortoise grow bigger.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Mr Hoppy lived in a small flat high up in a tall concrete building. He lived alone. He had always been a lonely man and now that he was retired from work he was more lonely than ever.

Publisher Book Description:
Mr. Hoppu's love for the flowers he grows on his balcony is exceeded only by his love for Mrs. Silver, the lady who lives in the apartment right below his. But because of Mr. Hoppy's shyness and Mrs. SIlver's preoccupation with her pet tortoise, his love remains unrequited, until he shares four "magic" words with Mrs. Silver.
