A giraffe with an infinitely expandable neck, a pelican with a magical retractable beak, a dancing monkey, and Billy, a small boy with a dream, team up to make the most amazing ladderless window-cleaning company ever invented! When they are summoned to clean the six hundred and seventy-seven windows of the richest Duke in the land, the four friends find themselves entangled in a rollicking adventure. By the time it's all over, they've caught the world's cleverest and most dangerous cat-burglar red-handed with the Duchess's diamonds. -Take a giraffe with a magic neck, a pelican with a retractable beak and a very agile monkey, and what do you have? The world's fines Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company, of course! Add in their friend Billy, the Duke and Duchess of Hampshire and the Cobra, the cleverest and most dangerous cat-burglar in the world, and you have all the ingredients for a deliciously funny tale - all in the pursuit of walnuts, salmon and the pink and purple flowers of the tinkle-tinkle tree, not to mention the Grand Opening of The Grubber...
