The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me - Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl Yet another sort and sweet story from Dahl. I'm surprised to say I didn't mind the songs in this book. Normally I skim or skip over the songs in Dahl's books. They tend to be long and annoying. There's usually quite a bit of them too. There were just a few in this book and they were a bit cute.This is really like a step above picture books. It's really short and not a whole lot of story. There's nothing wrong with that though. It makes for a very quick read. I was a bit surprised at the how 'cheerful' this book was. Normally Dahl's books have a bit of a dark side. This was nice and upbeat. No horrible adults in sight!The bottom line? It was fine.
