«Noi ti laviamo la finestra
finché non viene tutta lustra
e brilla come il mare da lontano!
Siamo veloci ed educati
veniamo appena siam chiamati,
io, la Giraffa e il Pellicano!»
Sono i famosi LAVAVETRI SENZA SCALA che finiranno nella Residenza Riverenza, nutriti a base di salmone, noci e dei fiori rosa e viola dell'Albero Campanello.

A short story about a Giraffe, Pelican and Monkey who open up a ladderless window cleaning company, who become friendly with a small boy called Billy. It's full of all the Dahlian humour and whimsy and nonsense, but like always it has a nice serious edge to it. Very charming, though definitely not hi Leggi tutto
کتاب را برای یک پسر بچه هفت ساله خواندم. صدایام را موقع گفتن دیالوگ هر کدام از شخصیتها عوض میکردم اما بیشتر از قصه، مجذوب حس حیرتی شدم که در چهرهی پسرک آشکار شده بود. میل شدید به شنیدن و پیشرفتن قصه، اشتیاقی که او را از تبلتش جدا کرده بود و آنچنان رام شده بود که سرش را تکه داده بود به بازوی Leggi tutto
I have to say this isn’t my favourite Roald Dahl story. Perhaps because it’s pretty short so it’s hard to really get into a fall in love with the character. However it’s worth reading, specially with children.
Another great re-read! Bring on more Dahl! I feel as though I can sprint through these books (which, I admit, are geared for children) and share them with the world. After a sweets shop goes on the selling block, our narrator, Billy, watches with amazement when a new company mysterious appears, as if Leggi tutto
A short, cute story about a kind boy and a group of animals with magical abilities. One of the rare books by Roald Dahl which are actually fun and cute instead of naughty and crazy. His absurd storytelling still shines though, and Wonka's factory makes an unexpected apparition. Cute! :)
Sent to Andrea Messent at Darren and Associates: Dear Darren & Associates, It is with some regret that I sit down to write this correspondence. I understand your reluctance to read voluminous missives so I will keep this missive as unchunky as my e-pen allows. On Sep 4th 2010 I sent to your agency, via Leggi tutto
I like to start the year with some fluffy books where nothing can go wrong. Roald Dahl created such "safe spaces" for us and despite some suspenseful moments almost all of them have, we always get a happy ending. In this book, we meeting the following characters: Billy lives in a street near an abando Leggi tutto
Quite a cute story. Billy discovers that someone bought the old candy store...and that someone happens to be a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey. They've opened a window cleaning company, using the monkey's hands to wash, the pelican's beak as a bucket and the giraffe as a ladder. Quite a clever set up Leggi tutto
Friendship is an amazing thing to share! The duke was a bit crazy, but the great kind of crazy :D And the closing poem, or song earned the book its forth star! "We have tears in our eyes As we wave our good byes We so love being with you, we three So do please now and then Come and see us again The giraff Leggi tutto
قصص الأطفال التي كنت أتمنى لو أنني قرأتها صغيرة لأتذوقها حقًا، من الصعوبة بمكان أن تبدأ القراءة في عُمر ما بدون أن تتحسّر على تلك الأيام والسنوات التي قضيتها قبل أن تعرف تلك اللذة. ربما ما سيشكل عوضًا بالنسبة ليّ هو أنني يومًا ما وإذا رُزقت بأطفال سألقي أمامهم بكل تلك القصص البريئة في كل مكان تقع علي Leggi tutto
