Publisher's Summary

READ BY DAVID WALLIAMS!! Another hilarious and moving novel from bestselling, critically acclaimed author David Walliams, the natural successor to Roald Dahl.

A story of prejudice and acceptance, funny lists and silly words, this new book 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….

Fabulous!

Would you listen to Gangsta Granny again? Why?

This book was hilarious! I just had to listen to it once more as soon as it was finished. :)

What does David Walliams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

David is a brilliant voice artist and he really brought an already good and funny book to an even higher level.

Any additional comments?

Warning! An unvoluntary outburst of giggles or laugher may occure! :D

Great Family Story

Gangsta Granny is a great book which I enjoyed listening to as much as my seven year old son and five year old daughter. David Walliams' story has many of the same qualities which appeal to children in Roald Dahl's books. It is funny and rather irreverent with great characters thrown into an exciting adventure.

Gangsta granny is great!

From the beginning I was laughing. I will never try cabbage soup but I do want to play scrabble with gangsta grannie. She is so good at telling stories and I liked it best when she decided to steal the crown jewels. I'm 7 and I loved it, even the ending. I asked my grannie to help me steal the crown jewels but she had an appointment at the hairdressers. Children and mummies and daddies will love this book. Listen to it today!

A Good Book for Everyone on a Long Car Journey

Having 2 7 year old kids and a 5 hours car ride ahead of us, this was the ideal book for us all to listen to. David Walliams narrates and helps bring the book to life for all. The story line is fun and with some good take aways for the kids. It especially handles the death of the Granny well. Now where was that cabbage soup?

Amazing story and outstanding narating. 😘🐏

I really loved all the different types of acsents the people had and I absolutely loved the bit when the Queen apeerd out of the darkness. I started crying when Ben went up to Granny's house and thought she would be looking out of the window hopefully.😢 Over all it was absalute fanominon.
