"We will polish your glass
Till it’s shining like glass
And 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!"

Welcome to the topsy-turvy world of The Ladderless Window Cleaning-Company

Billy doesn’t believe his eyes when the old deserted sweet shop down the road, The Grubber, undergoes a tremendous transformation. Who, thinks Billy, could need such enormous doors?  He doesn’t have much time to wonder though; before he can blink Billy has joined the extraordinary company of the Giraffe, the Pelly and the Monkey and is off on a whirlwind adventure.

For it just so happens that with a giraffe’s long neck, a monkey’s nimble fingers and a pelly’s retractable beak you can do almost anything. Particularly if you have a businessman like Billy alongside to help. Throw in a criminal caper, a hysterical duchess and some diamonds and before long you’ve got a chase on your hands. The window-cleaning business has never been so exciting!

Waterstones invites you to share in one of Roald Dahl’s most gentle tales, full of poetry, song and some simply marvellous moustaches.

Now the magic of Roald Dahl is brought to life in these new illustrated paperback editions from the imagination of Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s own favourite illustrator. With brand new, bold cover designs and Blake’s quintessential pen and ink drawings these are classic editions for every generation to enjoy.

Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world’s number one storyteller.

Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
