|aA small boy with a desire to own a candy shop meets a window-washing team composed of a giraffe, a pelican, and a monkey and together they go to work for the wealthy Duke of Hampshire, who makes all their dreams come true.
From the bestselling author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFGThe Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company certainly doesn't. They don't need a pail, either, because they have a pelican with a bucket-sized beak. With a monkey to do the washing and Billy as their manager, this business is destined for success. Now they have their big break--a chance to clean all 677 windows of the Hampshire House, owned by the richest man in all of England That's exciting enough, but along the way there are surprises and adventures beyond their wildest window-washing dreams.
