The Lovereading4Kids comment
Take a giraffe with a magic neck, a pelican with a retractable beak and a very agile monkey, and what do you have? The world's finest Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company, of course! Add in their friend Billy, the Duke and Duchess of Hampshire and the Cobra, the cleverest and most dangerous cat-burglar in the world, and you have all the ingredients for a deliciously funny tale - all in the pursuit of walnuts, salmon and the pink and purple flowers of the tinkle-tinkle tree, not to mention the Grand Opening of The Grubber...
The Good Book Guide Review. The Giraffe, the Pelly and the brown monkey - an unlikely trio - are the best of friends. What are they doing in their strange house by the side of the road? Roald Dahl's fantastic and original story is a delight to read and to see in Quentin Blake's hilarious illustrations.
The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl
Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller! The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me is a classic Roald Dahl story. Billy's biggest wish is to turn a weird old wooden house into a wonderful sweet shop. But then he finds a giraffe, a pelly and a monkey living inside - they're the Ladderless Window Cleaners! Who needs ladders when you've got a giraffe? They become best friends and when they meet the richest man in all England, there's a chance Billy's scrumptious-galumptious dream just might come true...
Now you can listen to The Giraffe and The Pelly and Me (with Esio Trot) and other
Roald Dahl audio books read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!
Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! inspired by the revolting Twits.
