Gangsta Granny

(41 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

Ben is 11, an only child and a poor reader, whose ambition is to be a plumber. Every Friday he visits his Granny, while his parents go to watch ballroom dancing, and he hates those dull, smelly, cabbage-dominated evenings. Then he discovers that his Granny isnโ€™t quite what she seems, and life takes a dramatic turn for the better.

Tony Ross's entertaining and funny illustrations are the ideal partner for David Walliams's outrageous, laugh-out-loud story. Walliams knows exactly what his readers want, and serves up humour filled with bums, farts and poo; but when Granny is taken into hospital the story takes a more serious turn, leaving readers to examine their own relationships with the elderly.
