The Tower, the Zoo, and the Tortoise by Julia Stuart
This exquisite novel, set in the Tower of London, is the story of Balthazar Jones who has lived in the Tower with his loving wife, Hebe, and his 120-year-old pet tortoise for the past eight years. Thats right; he is a Beefeater (they really do live there) and
its no easy job living and working in the tourist attraction of present-day London.
