Gangsta Granny - David Walliams

Gangsta GrannyAnother hilarious and moving novel from bestselling, critically acclaimed author David Walliams.

Gangsta Granny is a story of prejudice and acceptance, funny lists and silly words, and has all the hallmarks of David’s previous bestsellers. 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…

David began his publishing career in early 2008 with his debut novel, The Boy in the Dress, followed by Mr Stink in 2009 and Billionaire Boy in 2010. His books have been met with unanimous critical praise. In David’s short career as a children’s author he has sold over a quarter of a million books in the UK alone and he won The People’s Book Award in 2010 (for Mr Stink) and has been shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize (for both The Boy in the Dress and Mr Stink.)
