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...

Although David Walliams books are aimed at kids and young adults I thoroughly enjoy reading them. Gangsta Granny has to be my favourite!
The story revolves around a boy named Ben who is made to stay at his grandma's house whilst his parents are away. Like most kids, he thinks that she is a boring old lady, however he couldn't be more wrong- she is in fact an international jewel thief! Ben grows quite fond of his grandma, listening to her stories of great heists she has pulled off in her time, so much that he wants to help her with one last heist, stealing the crown jewels!
David Walliams uses such great humour, very much like Roald Dahl. It will keep you entertained and on the edge of your seat! - Wade
