Summary

Another hilarious and moving novel from David Walliams, number one best seller and fastest growing children’s author in the country. 

Read by David Williams!

A story of prejudice and acceptance, funny lists and silly words, this new book has all the hallmarks of David’s previous best sellers.

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....

Amazingly funny and sad

Fantastic read but what about the biscuit tin, what about that?! Granny and Raj were my favourite characters, both so funny.
