Summary

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, a classic Roald Dahl story, brought to life in an audiobook reading by House star Hugh Laurie.

Billy dreams of turning a weird old wooden house into a wonderful sweet-shop. But a giraffe, a pelly, and a monkey already live inside! Soon they are friends, and when they meet the richest man in England, Billy's scrumptious-galumptious dream just might come true....

Excellent and Beautifully Read

This is brilliant to listen to with the book or in the car. Hugh Laurie's voice is lovely to listen to and the music breaks the story up well.

I read this with my 4 year old and she loves it. Can't recommend enough.

Giraffe and pelly and me

I love this book soooooooo much that I have decided to rewrite the whole story exactly the same. I ❤️ it so much. I wish I had written that book or at least met Roald Dahl! I can't stop saying I ❤️ it. Hahaha😛

A classic, perfectly performed by Hugh Laurie.

Every bit as brilliant as the first time I heard it 25 years ago. Hugh Laurie is spot on. It is impossible not to listen from beginning to end.

Perfect

Ah, Hugh Laurie! He is just perfect for this story. His Duke of Hampshire is up there with his Bertie Wooster and Blackadder roles.

For those who don't know the tale, it is quite a short story but I managed to spin out reading it to my son for about a week of bedtime stories. As a "one-book monthly" subscriber I'm always after the most number of minutes I can get for my money. Roald Dahl is always worth making an exception for, especially when you're just introducing your child to his books.

We were all chuckling away in the car to this one, which is always good.

Fab for all the family

As usual, the imagination of Dahl crackles through this fun story - less dark than so many of his, so not going to scare the small children!

Hugh Laurie adds a dose of Blackadder style characterisation to the story, making it really entertaining. Kept us amused in the car, and likely to be one we repeat.

I am amazed by Hugh Laurie's narration of this book. Brilliantly done! My kids loved it.
