    Balthazar Jones has lived in the Tower of London with his loving wife, Hebe, and his 120-year-old pet tortoise for the past eight years. That’s right, he is a Beefeater (they really do live there). It’s no easy job living and working in the tourist attraction in present-day London.

    Sherrye says: "big fat disappointment"
    "Wonderful subtle British humor."

    Story
    If you could sum up The Tower, The Zoo, and The Tortoise in three words, what would they be?

    Whimsical,funny yet poignant.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and at times I cried.


    Any additional comments?

    If you don't like subtle, dry humor you probably won't care for this book. I do and I loved this book. In addition, the author throws in lots of zany historical facts about former inhabitants of the Tower of London.
