Kindergarten-Grade 4--Richard E. Grant reads Roald Dahl's story (Puffin, pap. 2002) in an animated and pleasant voice perfectly suited for the telling, including the requisite British dialect. One day looking for his favorite sweet shop, young Billy happens upon the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company comprised of the giraffe, the pelican (Pelly), and the monkey. The giraffe, with an extending neck, can reach all of the high places, the pelican can hold the soap and water in his bucket-sized beak, the monkey does all of the washing, and Billy becomes their manager. Their first customer proves to be a great challenge. They are hired to clean all 677 windows of Hampshire House, owned by the richest man in all of England. Of course, there are many adventures along the way. The brevity of this story makes it especially useful for beginning as well as reluctant readers. This audiobook is certain to be a hit at public and school libraries.--Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA

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.Published 23 months ago by Fabricio
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!Published on Aug. 11 2000
