Roald Dahl (Author) & Quentin Blake (Illustrator).

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me is a 1985 children's book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake.

The plot follows a young boy named Billy who meets a giraffe, a pelican, and a monkey, who work as window cleaners.

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 . . .

"It's one of his most delightful stories, and has been loved by adults and children alike for decades." - Google Review.

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