Product Description

How do you clean a window? If you’re boring, you hire a human. But if you’re a Roald Dahl fan, you call in the world’s first ladderless window-cleaning team! One giraffe with a super-long neck. One pelican with a huge beak for holding water. And one dancing monkey who can reach all the tricky corners! But don’t worry: this isn’t a story about cleaning windows. It’s about Billy, a kid who dreams of owning a sweet shop. It’s about England’s richest man, and a daring jewel robbery. Most of all – it’s about making you laugh LOTS!

  • A witty Roald Dahl classic, now with full-colour pictures
  • Full of imagination and Quentin Blake’s funny artwork
  • Short and simple story which is great for younger readers
  • Perfect for reading alone or shared family reading times

Roald Dahl

Roald dahl 259 1451264

Roald Dahl was born in Llandaff, South Wales on September 13th 1916. His parents were Norwegian, and were called Harald and Sofie. He went to Repton school, in Derbyshire, and left school in 1933. His first job was in Africa, with the Shell Oil Company. In the second world war he fought as a fighter pilot, and was badly injured when his plane crashed. After the war he worked in America, and soon started writing stories. His very first children’s book, written in 1943 was called The Gremlins. Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of the President of the USA liked it so much he was invited to the White House and became friends with the President, Franklin D Roosevelt. He wrote a number of books and short stories for adults, many of which were televised as the hugely popular Tales of the Unexpected. But it was as a children’s author that he found greatest fame and satisfaction, saying “I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers…Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful.” Millions of fans around the world agreed and have chuckled and gasped at his amazing stories. His mesmerising stories, written in sizzling, sparkly language, will lead you into adventures you’ll never ever forget! From 1945 until his death, he lived at Gipsy House, in Buckinghamshire, where he wrote his famous children’s books. He died in hospital in Oxford, on November 23rd, 1990. His books have continued to be read and loved, and have been made into a number of hit films, including Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You can even visit the Roald Dahl Museum in the village where Dahl lived for most of his life. In 2009 the Roald Dahl Funny Prize was established in his memory.

    It was good but it could add some more adventure and a lot more mystery and more believable things and characters and maybe add some funny jokes you hear or search. Don’t just add animals add things that aren’t real like mermaid or dragons or magic like Harry potter
