Read for a challenge - read a child favorite.
I remember I loved this book when I was little - even did a book report about it. I do see now that I'm older, that it's not exactly decent of him to lie to a gullable older lady to trick her into falling in love with him, but it's still cute :) ( )

I mean, basically the dude tricks her into thinking her tortoise is growing when it's not by buying 100 tortoises and sneaking into her place and replacing it every night. And she falls for him even though he's bumbling and sneaky and middle-aged, and her tee-tee insouciance and hot young body are weirdly prominent. These days we'd call it rape culture, or something close. ( )

This book is such an adorable story. I love the thought of all those tortoises and the illustrations are great. ( )

delightful, stem to stern - fanciful and far fetched and wonderful ( )
