"I have always longed and longed to own a sweet-shop... Oh boy, what I couldn't have done with that old Grubber shop if it had been mine!" - The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

Billy is the 'Me' in Roald Dahl's 1985 story The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me - well, we think he is, but the other Very Important member of the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company not mentioned in the book's title is the Monkey.

Whatever the details, Billy is very definitely one of the gang. A friendly and inquisitive boy with a love of confectionary, an admiration for Mr Willy Wonka and an ability to remain unfazed even in the presence of fearsome burglars, Billy's greatest wish is to own his own sweet shop, or 'Grubber.'

When he meets the Giraffe, Pelican and Monkey shortly after they've taken over the premises of a former sweet-shop near his house, little does he know this dream might not be so far out of reach, thanks to his quick-thinking friends and the very rich Duke of Hampshire...

Oh boy, what I couldn't have done with that old Grubber shop if it had been mine!
