Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller! 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 . . . Now you can listen to THE GIRAFFE AND THE PELLY AND ME (with ESIO TROT) and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios! And look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.
"A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" David Walliams

I read it to LA12 aged 5 aged 5

This is a brilliant story for any child beginning to read Roald Dahl books and discover his best-loved heroes. A boy called Billy dreams of turning an old, empty building back into a sweet shop. One day he finds a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey living inside, and together they are the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company. It is a slightly longer Dahl story, however the short chapters make it easy to read together and Leo loves the big colourful illustrations throughout.

This was the second Roald Dahl book I read. It is an adventure story for children. I liked the bit where the giraffe did magic. Its a very good book!

4 stars
I was a little disappointed with this book as it was not what I expected.
I did however really like the characters especially the giraffe.
The story is about a group of friends who work together as window cleaners and through their work help solve a crime.
I found this book difficult to read myself as it had no chapters in it and was quite a long book, without the chapters it was difficult to stop which put me off a bit.
Would recommend for children age 8+

Bella loved that there was a giraffe in this book (her favourite animal). she was glued to the book from the moment she picked it up. She even took it to school to read at lunchtime as she was keen to know what was going on. The animals were funny as they window clean. Bella said the book made her very excited ::)

You can't go wrong with Roald Dahl. He's brilliant! My daughter was born on his birthday so they share something cool.
