I love this book, because it introduces collaboration, hard work and the importances of honesty and friendship. The characters are fun and easy for a toddler to understand.

I have been a Ronald Dahl fan since I was a kid. As a child, I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and its sequel. I recently discovered The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me.
It is pure delight! The characters, and plot are fun and unexpected. It is full of humor and surprises. Good and silly to the very last page. My children loved it.
As a mom, I love that Ronald Dahl does not 'talk down' to children in his books. The vocabulary is rich and flows beautifully.
Fun for any age, I recommend it especially for a family read aloud.

The book" The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me" was an exciting one. In my opinion it was funny and it had a lot of things going on in it.
The story is about a young boy who wants to own an old grubber shop, which is another word for candy store. The grubber shop was sold to The Ladderless Window Cleaning Company, which are a giraffe, a pelican, and a monkey. The boy made friends with The Ladderless Window cleaning Company group and was invited to join the compnay as their business manager. The company gets a job washing the Duke's palace windows. While cleaning the windows they see a robber with a pistol on the third floor. They stop him from stealing some jewels and had him arrested. The Duke gave each of them a rich reward of the one thing each had always wanted.
I would recommend this book to other fourth graders and younger readers too' because it makes you feel nice. The author gives good details and has a magical feel.

Bizarrely, for a Dahl story, there are no grisly deaths, no giant bugs and no magic. A giraffe, a pelican and a monkey open a ladderless window cleaning company, and eventually a young boy gets to open his own candy store. A great big oversized book (mine is, the new one's not), full of terrific drawings and much fun.

As always, Dahl creates a wonderful picturesque story, with the help of the always amusing illustrator Quentin Blake, that lets the dreams of every small boy or girl come to life!

"My dimonds are over the ocean,
My dimonds are over the sea,
Oh, bring back, bring back, bring back my dimonds to me, to me!
Oh, bring back, bring back, bring back my dimonds to me, to me!
Oh, bring back, bring back, bring back my dimonds to me to me! Bring back my dimonds to me!"
And that's excatly what the giraffe, the pelly, and Billy do--and they have a lot of funny adventures before, during, and after doing it!
THE GIRAFFE, THE PELLY, AND ME is a lightly magical, mildly illsustrated, ROLL-OVER-LAUGHING kind of book. Dahl's comedy is the funniest it has ever been; the very reason I gave it five stars.... Dahl's best!
