        This book was great anf funny 😂! It also teaches a lesson in it. If you want something then you gotta work hard or help someone else in need! If you hadn't read this book you should read it!

          I loved this book, especially since I was in the play The Giraffe, The Monkey, The Pelican, And Me.

                I liked this book because of its unique plot and descriptive details. The plot is unique because there's a little boy who joins a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey to go on their ladder-less window cleaning adventure. They meet a duke who lives in a mansion with hundreds of windows. Then they get hired for the toughest job yet! I recommend this book to kids ages 8 and older.

                  It was kind of boring and far fetch. It was not really very interesting. It was to much of a fantasy.
