Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Saturday, August 01, 2020
This softcover was among the bounty of books I got from BCer tobysrus, who's downsizing and decluttering. Most of the unregistered ones will go direct to release, though I may dip into some.

This one's a cute children's book by the quirky Roald Dahl, featuring an unusual attempt at courtship - an old man goes to scarily ludicrous lengths to persuade the fetching widow in the apartment below him that her pet tortoise is growing larger. I don't know that I'd recommend this kind of sit-com tactic in real life, but in the story it's amusing enough, especially as all the tortoises involved wind up safe and sound (if not always where they started out).
