Another short, well illustrated book by Roald Dahl. It's about a kid who after seeing an old closed sweet shop in his neighborhood gets the desire to own it and convert it into the most beautiful sweet shop of his own. One day when he finds out that the house has been bought by a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey , he meets them and they become instant friends. The story goes about how they get to meet a duke and how the boy finally fulfills him dream.

The book is written as if it were a poem. The words written beautifully and ring even after you put the book down.

The best part of the edition that I own of this book is the interesting info given in the end about Roald Dahl, his likings and habits. It's always fun to know more about the person hiding behind the thick veil of an illustrious creation.
