The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me (Colour Edition)

Only Roald Dahl could have thought of a tale this crazy. Now it’s in colour. One tall story. Window-cleaning by a man on a ladder? BORING. There’s a much better way to clean windows: with a giraffe, a monkey and a pelican. The giraffe has a super-long neck. The pelican has a magical retractable beak. And the dancing monkey is wonderfully agile. Awesome Roald Dahl with colour pictures by Quentin Blake right through. Plus a jewel robbery, a fearsome villain – and even a sweet shop!

  • A witty Roald Dahl classic, now with full-colour pictures
  • Full of imagination and Quentin Blake’s funny artwork
  • Short and simple story which is great for younger readers
  • Perfect for reading alone or shared family reading times
