"it makes me all wobbly just thinking about it!' Roald Dahl Review with images

AdvantagesA wonderfully funny and well written book

DisadvantagesNONE NONE NONE

"== THE GIRAFFE AND THE PELLY AND ME == === ROALD DAHL === My son is thirteen now and I don't think that he would really appreciate me sitting on the end of his bed reading him a story. But from being a very tiny child I always read to him, as he got a little older Roald Dahl were always the stories that he loved me to read, and one of his - and my - favourites was always "The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me". What makes this such a wonderful ..." Read review

ANIMAL MAGIC Review with images

AdvantagesA Joyous read

DisadvantagesNone, it`s a Roald Dahl

"...it sparkles like sun on the sea! We are quick and polite, We will come day or night, The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me!” Just around the corner from where Billy lives is an amazingly high and thin building. The bottom floor used to be a “Grubber” or sweet shop, but now the building is empty and dilapidated with a big “For Sail” sign in the window.

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

AdvantagesFantastic, lively read, great illustrations

Disadvantagesnone

"...enough of them. I loved the light hearted, jolly and lively way in which they are written. And I loved the exciting pictures done by illustrator Quentin Blake. Although I used to borrow the books I read from my local library, my younger sister now owns a boxset of Roald Dahl's books.

A completely grubberly story.

AdvantagesA wonderful read

DisadvantagesNone

"...of Roald Dahl books. I selected the thinnest at approximately 71 pages long and went off to bed. I was very tired but I found the book so amusing I could not put it down. Illustrated wonderfully by Quentin Blake just the glorious drawings kept me awake. The story begins with the dreams of little Billy, looking at this wonderful tall building called a Grubber. - known to Billy as a sweetshop, well that is what his mother had told him. Then odd ..."

Giraffe Pelly and Me too!

AdvantagesEnchanting story

DisadvantagesNone!

"...sweet shop. We never learn the name of the main character, who also acts as a narrator, which lends the book a magical air - any child reading it can imagin themselves in the position of 'me' and make the story their own. We meet the Giraffe and the Pelly, and the monkey who is also in the story as they offer a window cleaning service. the giraffe is the ladder, the pelican's beak the bucket, and the monkey does the cleaning. But they are magic. ..." Read review
