Emily reviews Gangsta Granny, by David Walliams

Hi Emily here. I’m going to be telling you all about the book Gangsta Granny, written by David Walliams. I hope you enjoy it.

Gangsta Granny is about a boy called Ben. He has a mum and dad who ignore him all the time because all they care about is… ballroom dancing! Ben also has a very boring Grandmother who only likes playing scrabble and eats everything with cabbage (so it makes her very smelly ). Every Friday its movie night so his parents go out to watch ballroom dancing and Ben always gets dumped at granny’s house. One night whilst Granny was asleep Ben crept downstairs and dialled his dad’s phone number and asked “please can I come home?” His dad said “absolutely not!” So he put down the phone whilst he did this he saw a shadow .Then he thought had Granny heard all that. He waited a minute and quickly but quietly crept up to bed. The next morning whilst they were eating breakfast Granny looked more gloomy than usual, this got Ben really worried about last night. Then Granny decided to go and get another jumper even though she was already wearing two. When Granny was out of the way Ben decided to eat one of Granny’s best chocolates, so he went to where she kept them and opened the tin and found…


I’m not going to tell you anymore but it’s pretty obvious that Granny isn’t a normal granny at all!

I like Gangsta Granny because you find out about the real Granny I also think it’s exiting 

 Thank you for reading my opinion on Gangsta Granny and I hope you have enjoyed it so much you will want to read the book.
