The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me (Picture Book)

A giraffe with an incredible expanding neck, a pelican with a magical retractable beak and a wonderfully agile dancing monkey team up to create the most amazing ladderless window-cleaning company ever! But when they clean the glittering palace of England’s richest Duke, they are soon rescuing the Duchess’s jewels from a fearsome villain! This magical story from Roald Dahl is now retold in a picture-book version crammed with Quentin Blake’s fabulous colour artwork. A comical, crazy romp from start to finish, it’s bursting with peculiar characters and deliciously crooked crooks!
