Roald Dahl Day Blog Hop Esio Trot


It's Roald Dahl day today. To celebrate the great authors birthday I did a lunch about a cute little fellow named Alfie the tortoise. Who helps bring a couple together.

Esio Trot is a Wonderful little little book and I hope you are inspired today by our Blog hop to go read a Roald Dahl book to yourself or your kids. Or go visit Roalddahlday.info for more ideas.



I love the magic turtle language, my daughter spent the day talking backwards!

ESIO TROT, ESIO TROT, 
TEG REGGIB REGGIB!
EMOC NO, ESIO TROT,
WORG PU, FFUP PU, TOOHS PU!
GNIRPS PU, WOLB PU, LLEWS PU!
EGROG! ELZZUG! FFUTS! PLUG!
TUP NO TAF, ESIO TROT, TUP NO TAF!
TEG NO, TEG NO, ELBBOG DOOF!


Roald Dahl Day Esio Trot Bento


Alfie (or is it one of his doppelgangers?) is made of three sorts of tortilla spinach, whole wheat and flour for the grabber. He is sitting on French toast sandwich.

The many, many tortoises that Mr Hoppy buys are cheese crackers ( Ok so they might be turtles, but I did sort them out from all the Shamu and friends crackers!)

ESIO TROT is spelled out in Scrabble cheese-it's  on top of lettuce and mini grapes. Then sweet bell peppers and a spinach leaf and some grapes for Alfie to munch on.

All served up in a PlanetBox Rover

Oh and if you haven't figured it out yet ESIO TROT is TORTOISE backwards!

Now go visit my bento friend at Bento Days by clicking on the Roald Dahl day button below for another Roald Dahl Day Lunch
