The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

Summary

"The Pelican spread his huge white wings and flew down on to the road beside me. 'Hop in,' he said, opening his enormous beak . . ."

MEET BILLY. A kid with a dream. He wants to turn an old wooden house into an incredible sweetshop full of treats!

AND MEET THE LADDERLESS WINDOW-CLEANING COMPANY: Monkey, Pelican (Pelly) and Giraffe (who needs ladders when you've got a giraffe?!).

They have just landed a big break cleaning all six hundred and seventy-seven windows of the mansion owned by the richest man in all of England! All they need now is a little help from Billy.

Can these unlikely new friends make Billy's wildest dreams come true and take him on an adventure he'll never forget . . .?
