Kelly review for
Gangsta Granny by David Walliams

Ben thinks his Granny is old and boring, whose favourite pastime is eating cabbage. But when Ben has to go and stay with his Granny for a few nights, he soon realises that she is much more interesting than he thinks because she’s a jewel thief. So Ben and his Granny go on a quest, to steal the crowned jewels. As the story progresses the bond between Ben and his Granny grows stronger and stronge, which added an emotional element to the book.

From the very first page this book had me laughing out loud, so I’m sure it would be a sure winner with children on that note. But what I liked most about the book was that it had a certain depth to it, that you don’t often find in children’s books of this nature. It had funny parts. But it also had sad parts, which I’m sure many of the children reading this story can relate to.

Walliams has written a great feel good book full of laughs and also touching emotion. I really enjoyed reading this book and the bond between grown up and child had a real Matilda feel to it, which was my favourite book growing up. I loved it from start to finish and I’m sure it is a real winner with children too.
