Gangsta Granny
Gangsta Granny | David Walliams
A hilarious and moving story of old age, adventure, stolen jewels and swimming the Thames, from David Walliams, number one bestseller and fastest growing childrens author in the country. I absolutely love David Walliams's books. In a few more years they will become classics. Sue Townsend, author of Adrian Mole Our hero Ben is bored beyond belief after he is made to stay at his grandmas house. Shes the boringest grandma ever: all she wants to do is to play Scrabble, and eat cabbage soup. But there are two things Ben doesnt 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 Bens help...

This is a cute and fun Grandma and grandson story, includes the Queen and the biggest robbery ever done. Even though it's a children's book, this one goes straight to a grwon-ups heart. 3/4 of the book are the fun part, but at the end Walliams also talks about death and letting go. Important lessons for our young readers.

Any last comments on my Gangsta Granny post from the kids at my school would be greatly appreciated, going to be showing it to them soon, so only about an hour left to put any new comments on. They‘d love to hear from you!!! #encouragereading #doitforthekids

Bronte_Chintz @LiterRohde You should, mine have roared laughing through this. David Williams is proving to be a bit of an aspiring Roald Dahl. His books are very popular here. (edited) 5y

This book seriously caught me off guards. It filled up laughters and surprisingly, tears too. Benny truly reminded me of myself sometimes, for being impatient and impolite young brat; and as Grandma, I somehow saw my own mother in her.

One of the things that make me flip the book is a majestic thing like this. I couldn't help myself to not take picture of this cotton tree.

100 years and man there she is, still standing tall and strong 😍

David Walliams has got a real gift for children's writing! Gangsta Granny was funny, interesting and touching. The story explores the relationship between grandmother and grandson which develops when granny's unlikely past is revealed. Walliams creates unique and funny characters each with their own quirks.
An easy read - fantastic for encouraging reluctant readers!

I just finished this audiobook. It ended up being a sweet and funny story about love and connection and trying to pull a jewel heist with your grandmother. The way the main character disparaged and disrespected his grandmother was super harsh in the beginning. Thankfully that narrative turned around. The stereotypical trope of the South Asian shopkeeper was unnecessary and annoying - otherwise enjoyable and funny and sweet at times.

This book is about a boy named Ben who thinks his granny is really boring. Little does he know she is an international jewel thief. This is an amazing story that weaves together important life lessons in a way that you don't see coming. Highly recommend this middle grade book.
