The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl is a delightful children’s book that tells the story of Billy, a young boy who becomes friends with a giraffe, a pelican, and a monkey. The book is filled with fun and quirky characters that children are sure to love, and it is written in Dahl’s signature style that is both whimsical and witty.
The story starts with Billy, who lives next door to an old abandoned sweet shop. One day, he notices that the shop has been taken over by a new business called the Ladderless Window Cleaning Company. The company is run by a giraffe, a pelican, and a monkey, who use their unique abilities to clean windows on tall buildings. Billy is amazed by their skills and quickly becomes friends with the animals.
As the story unfolds, Billy helps the animals with their window cleaning business and even saves them from a dangerous situation. Along the way, he discovers that the animals have a dream of owning their own sweet shop, and together they set out to make that dream a reality.
One of the things I love about this book is how it encourages children to use their imagination and think outside the box. The animals in the story are so unique and creative, and they show children that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. The story also teaches children about the importance of friendship, teamwork, and perseverance.
The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me is a charming and entertaining children’s book that I would highly recommend. Dahl’s writing is engaging and humorous, and the story is filled with heartwarming moments that are sure to leave a smile on your face. It’s a book that both children and adults can enjoy, and it’s a classic that will stand the test of time.
