    One thought on “The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

    1. Joey Woolfardis

      A short story about a Giraffe, Pelican and Monkey who open up a ladderless window cleaning company, who become friendly with a small boy called Billy. It's full of all the Dahlian humour and whimsy and nonsense, but like always it has a nice serious edge to it.Very charming, though definitely not his best and quite unsubstantial in reality. In general, it's written as well as all his others but I think the emphasis on the whimsy really helped this particular story, especially since it was more a [...]

      قصص الأطفال التي كنت أتمنى لو أنني قرأتها صغيرة لأتذوقها حقًا، من الصعوبة بمكان أن تبدأ القراءة في عُمر ما بدون أن تتحسّر على تلك الأيام والسنوات التي قضيتها قبل أن تعرف تلك اللذة.ربما ما سيشكل عوضًا بالنسبة ليّ هو أنني يومًا ما وإذا رُزقت بأطفال سألقي أمامهم بكل تلك القصص ال [...]

      This was an extremely cute book. I read this book as an adult, for me, by me, with no one else. As an adult I forget how fun it is to read children's chapter books. It brings back memories of when I was in elementary school. Roald Dahl was my favorite author and Matilda was my favorite book of all time in elementary school. My new goal is read every book by him!I suggest this book to anyone that wants a quick, fun read :)

      Quite a cute story.Billy discovers that someone bought the old candy stored that someone happens to be a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey. They've opened a window cleaning company, using the monkey's hands to wash, the pelican's beak as a bucket and the giraffe as a ladder. Quite a clever set up!As you can imagine, this story is full of whimsy and delightful coincidences as they meet the Duke, catch a robber and find a home.

      TGATPAE is probably Dahl’s most sweetest and simplest story I’ve read so far in his catalogue. It centers on a little boy who dreams of owning his own candy store 🍭 🍬. When he finds an abandoned building, he meets an eccentric group of window washers consisting of a giraffe, pelican and a monkey giraffe 🦒 🐦 🐒 and together help the boy’s dream come true. It’s not complex or peculiar like many of Dahl’s other children’s books, but has a nice gentler tone and story that n [...]

      Bring on more Dahl! I feel as though I can sprint through these books (which, I admit, are geared for children) and share them with the world. After a sweets shop goes on the selling block, our narrator, Billy, watches with amazement when a new company mysterious appears, as if overnight. Billy goes to check things out, where he comes across a giraffe sticking its head out of the top-floor window. Thereafter, a pelican emerges to share the story of their window cleaning business, which is rounde [...]

One day when he finds out that the house has been bought by a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey , he meets them and they become instant friends. The story goes about how they get to meet a duke and how the boy finally fulfills him dream. The book is written as if it were a poem. The [...]

      Three entrepreneurial critters team up with a sweet-tooth little boy to wash windows and happen to bust a criminal in the middle of a burglary. Typical Roald Dahl daftery.The story itself was 3 stars, but Hugh Laurie's narration made it extra fun. There's something about his voice that is perfectly suited to Dahl's nonsense candy names.

    16. Zohreh Hanifeh

      دنیای رولد دال خیلی قشنگه. جایی که همه با توانایی های منحصر به فردشون و همون جوری که خودشون هستن ارزشمندن و مفید واقع میشن.

      So I vowed to go on a childhood literary journey which saw me reread all of the Harry Potter books in the summer and now I plan on reading Roald Dahl's work. I thought I would start off with a short story, which I've got to say, I don't really remember reading but alas, here I am at 23 reigniting my love for Dahl's whimsical imagination. This is a lovely story about friendship found in the most surreal circumstances. A child called Billy with a fondness for sweets, wishes the old 'Grubber' shop [...]

      Ah, Roald Dahl, the soundtrack of my childhood.I’m fairly certain my entire generation picked up a Dahl book throughout their childhood. Dahl books are great for kids, made up of interesting events which capture the imagination. They’re the kind of books that you can look back on when you’re older and smile as you remember the events which played out, knowing that these are books you’re going to pass on to future generations.In short, as a large part of my childhood, Dahl is a must read [...]
