Obviously I love this book, there aren't any Roald Dahl books that aren't fantastic! The story itself is great, however I was a little disappointed with the actual quality of the book.
The issue I have with this book is it is a little disappointing size and quality wise. The book is very small and thin, and the paper quality just feels a bit cheap. I was expecting it to be larger with colour illustrations, but i hasn't. Maybe I should have opted for the hardback version, however I needed this for a present so did not have the time to send it back and change it.

Apart from that it was fine, and was a very welcome present for one happy little girl!

Maybe i live a sheltered life but this has to be one of the best kid's books ever written. I wonder whether Mr. Dahl was a madman or a genious. I got this for my 4 year old and as much as he enjoyed it, I think the real treat was for me the mum. This book must have passed me by when i was a child but I shall make sure I recommend it to all of my friends (and their children of course).

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.

My favourite book of all time has to be the Giraffe and the pelly and me. I first read it in year three. I think the funniest part is when the giraffe the pelican and the monkey are throwing household things out of the window and its all smashing on the concrete below. When I first read the book I belived the giraffes neck could really strech, the giraffe stretches his neck whilst window cleaning for the duke. I always dreamed of eating the sweets, from the grubber, Gumtwizzlers, Fizzwinkles, Frothblowers, Spitsizzlers, Tummyticklers, Gobwangles and Plushnuggets.

Loved this book when I was little and love it now. Absolutely magical! My daughter will love this whether she likes it or not. There's a lot more words than I remembered so I think I bought it too soon for her (age 3) but in no time at all she will easily be able to listen to it all and I have no doubt that it will capture her imagination as it did mine.

I liked it alot because it made me laugh out loud. There's an abandoned house. There's animal window cleaners who wash the windows. Keep reading this book and you will find out the characters adventures. Beautifully illustrated by Quentin Blake this is a brilliant book because I couldn't put it down.

This book is about a window cleaning company operated by a Giraffe, a Pelican and a Monkey from a shop called the Grubber (former sweet shop). When they are given an assignment to clean the Duke of Hampshire's windows from his country estate little do they know what adventures they will encounter.

Absolutely loved this book. Where did Roald Dahl get his imagination from? The man was a genius
