The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

Front Cover
Penguin UK, Sep 4, 2008 - Juvenile Fiction - 96 pages

Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller!

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 . . .

Now you can listen to THE GIRAFFE AND THE PELLY AND ME (with ESIO TROT) and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios!

And look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.
"A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" David Walliams
