Our hero Ben is bored beyond belief after he is made to stay at his grandma’s house. She’s the boringest grandma ever: all she wants to do is to play Scrabble, and eat cabbage soup. But there are two things Ben doesn’t know about his grandma.

1) She was once an international jewel thief.

2) All her life, she has been plotting to steal the Crown Jewels, and now she needs Ben’s help…

  2. A wild adventure between grandma and grandson. Ben is a typical kid who just believes that his grandma is same old same old, knitting and disgusting soup. Until one day he is set on a thrilling chase with his Grandma going to steal the Queens crown. With love, laughs and unfortunate tears this novel is one easy read that is extremely enjoyable. Personally, I love Granny as she is shows that sometimes you have to do things you wouldn’t typically do for the ones that you live. This is a story about family and love and shows that families come in all shapes and sizes but you should love who they are and not force them to be “worthy” for you because their best is enough. Overall this is an easy read book that I quite enjoyed and personally feel that anyone of all ages would enjoy this book because of its journey and connection to all and personally from a young age I enjoyed it so I believe that anyone would love it. In the end I would score this book a solid 8/10.

    This is one of my favourite books of all time, it will keep you laughing for days after you read it. This is such a humorous book and I think that kids younger than 8 would really enjoy it if their parents read it to them. This is about a young boy who goes to his grandmas house a lot as he’s parents are always going to balls and dances. He finds his grandma’s house so boring and she only plays scrabble and eats cabbage. That is until one day he finds out a big secret and all he wants to do is be at his grandmother’s house, if only he can find an excuse…… his love grows incredibly for his grandmother and looks forward all week to seeing her! they plot amazing things together that make you want to never put this book down. Then something tragic happens and nobody was expecting it. He suddenly feels all alone again with no one who understands him left in the world, will the newsagent even be able to cheer him up? somehow David Walliams has been able to make a book that is happy and sad at the same time. He has been able to make a book that is funny enough to make you laugh so hard that tears are running down your face and the next minute those tears are sad tears. This is such an awesome book that will make you long for more, READ THIS BOOK!

  5. This book is entertaining and will leave you laughing. Gangsta granny seems like the basic old boring grandma but not until you meet her, she will leave you wanting more. I would recommend this to people wanting a funny but interesting read. This book is the number 1 best selling and one of David’s books! The genre of this book is comedy. This is a book to not judge a book by its cover on. I would rate this book a 8.5 out of 10!
