The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl is one of his most delightful stories, and has been loved by adults and children alike for decades.

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-Cleaning Company! Who needs ladders when you've got a giraffe? They become best friends and when they meet the richest man in all of England, there's a chance that Billy's scrumptious-galumptious dream just might come true . . .

"A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" David Walliams

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.

Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun This book is innocent fun for younger readers with a nice moral. Not as tart as many of Dahl's funnier books.
