From the Publisher

Matilda Wormwood is only five years old, but she is a genius. Unfortunately, her parents are too stupid to even notice. Worse, her horrible headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, is a bully who makes life difficult—especially for Matilda's teacher, Miss Honey, and her friends. However, what Miss Trunchbull doesn't know is that Matilda is an incredibly clever child and has a trick or two up her sleeve...

Nobody has seen Willy Wonka—or the inside of his amazing chocolate factory—in years. When Wonka announces his plans to invite the winners of five Golden Tickets to visit his factory, the whole world is after those tickets! Little Charlie Bucket longs to find a Golden Ticket and get the chance to visit the mysterious factory and well, he has just as much chance as anyone else, doesn’t he?

James Henry Trotter lives with his two horrid aunts, Spiker and Sponge, who never let him have fun or play with other children. He hasn't got a single friend in the whole wide world. That is, not until he meets the Old Green Grasshopper and the rest of the insects aboard a giant, magical peach!

The Big Friendly Giant, BFG, is unlike other giants. For a start, he’d rather eat repulsant snozzcumbers than chomp on innocent children—lucky for little Sophie, he is far too nice and jumbly. It's not long before the BFG becomes Sophie's very best friend, and the pair are hatching a clever plan to deal with the cruel and nasty giants—with a very exceptional ally.

Description

Product Description

From the bestselling author of  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG

The Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company certainly doesn''t. They don’t need a pail, either, because they have a pelican with a bucket-sized beak. With a monkey to do the washing and Billy as their manager, this business is destined for success. Now they have their big break—a chance to clean all 677 windows of the Hampshire House, owned by the richest man in all of England! That’s exciting enough, but along the way there are surprises and adventures beyond their wildest window-washing dreams.

About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

A great read.

The first full book I read to my daughter at 2 years old.

The last book we read to my wife before she passed away from cancer. She couldn''t talk but she zoned in & out as we retold the story out loud, we could see she was still with us, still present.

The ending brought tears to us all.
Will forever be a special book in our family.

I thought I was familiar with all of Roald Dahl’s books from when my children were small, but I’m learning about new ones with my grandchildren. The BFG has been my go-to “introduction to chapter books” story, but even precocious children need to be close to 5 before they can sit and listen. Then I found The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me. Perfect for a precocious almost-4-year-old who “got “ the idea of chapter books after the first, albeit far from the only, reading. She promptly moved on to longer and more complex books, and I’m sure we have a lifelong reader.

My fault.... in a hurry..... wanted the book for a granddaughter to replace our old one which was given away . I assumed that I was getting the large old hardcover and was surprised to get the very small and slim paperback version. The price should have alerted me but it is the exact book and perfect shape and came immediately and will certainly serve the purpose . The only problem was on my part..... the book sellers performed perfectly .

Not the Typical Style of the Author
Reviewed in the United States on November 22, 2019
While this story was fantasy, it lacked the magical and weird aspects of the author that I typically don’t like. It’s a quick read with cute illustrations.

Not compatible on the Kindle
Reviewed in the United States on April 4, 2018
This edition is not compatible with the Kindle. The font is tiny and cannot be adjusted - you can only zoom in on the actual page. Complete waste of money and unfortunately there are no alternatives to order.

This is a beautifully written book to read to your young child. It is so full of imagination that you are taken into Dahl''s magical world believing that a giraffe, a pelican, and a monkey could do your next window cleaning. We read "James and the Giant Peach" last year, and like that book this one is great read aloud. The action of the book keeps your child on the tips of their toes. It is such fun!

I bought this lovely illustrated version of The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me for a 5 year old grandchild. We know the story well because of the wonderful recorded version staring Hugh Laurie. We play this often in the car and it delights small passengers and me. I wanted a book for this grandchild whose reading is coming on in leaps and bounds. She enjoys it very much. All my grandchildren are Dahl fans and I’m guessing we know all his books for children. They all have a favourite. I like this one particularly with its Quentin Blake illustrations and would recommend it wholeheartedly. It has that slight madness that small children accept immediately (a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey setting up a window cleaning business), eccentricity (the richest man in the whole of England), a bit of morality (the burglars getting caught) and a happy ending. Glorious stuff!

Great classic story, my son isn''t a fiction book fan but this one he actually liked. It wasn''t too long and had interesting characters, the story is packed with things little boys like, for example sweets, a robbery, a gun. Really good story to start on as it seems to have sparked a real interest in Roald Dahl for my son (thankfully as I don''t feel I can continue reading books about cement, jet planes, tractors etc without loosing my mind). Excellent value for money.

Love this story and the kids will love it too. Book was used but marked as in good condition. Would say the condition was average. Love the story though and the bigger colour edition is much easier for the kids to see.
