Gangsta Granny

David’s naughty nanny has hijacked the nation’s tellies. Snatch and grab her book and join the joyride! She’s our favourite outlaw OAP and now she’s also a TV star. So read her book to see what the fuss is about. Ben has the most (extra) ordinary granny in the world. She’s boring beyond belief: mauve dresses, Scrabble games, cabbage soup… Except that she’s not really. She was once a top jewel thief. And all her life, she’s been plotting to steal the crown jewels. Come join this gansta granny on the run!

    I liked it because it is very humourous. A boy goes to his granny’s every friday but there’s a secret that he doesn’t know… I thought that the story wasn’t long enough.
