The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

Summary

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

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 . . .

Do you love audio books? Listen to THE GIRAFFE AND THE PELLY AND ME (with ESIO TROT), and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices- plus added squelchy sound effects!
