9780141311272: The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me (Young Puffin Read Alone)

The giraffe with an infinitely expandable neck, the pelican with a magical retractable beak, and the dancing monkey are among Roald Dahl's most popular characters. Together with Billy, a small boy with a dream, they team up to make the most amazing ladderless window-cleaning company ever invented.

About the Author:

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.

From AudioFile:

Richard E. Grant uses a full range of tones and tempos to create distinct voices for all the characters in this story of Billy's encounter with the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company. Grant's Pelly speaks with a speech impediment and a singsong rhythm; his monkey is slightly breathless, but, sadly, his giraffe does not sound female as the text clearly indicates. Grant shines when various characters sing; his portrayal of the opera star turned duchess singing about her stolen diamonds is a particular delight. Grant's straightforward narration lets Dahl's droll language and dialogue take center stage. This winning production will make the whole family smile.
