Another hilarious and moving novel from bestselling, critically acclaimed author David Walliams, the natural successor to Roald Dahl. 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.
Since 2008 David Walliams has taken the children's literary world by storm. His most recent book RATBURGER, immediately went to no.1 in the children's chart, while the PB of his previous title, GANGSTA GRANNY, currently dominates the UK charts and has sold over 100,000 PBs on top of 370,000+ HBs and 36,000 ebooks (Bookscan July 2013). Today, David is the fastest growing Children's author in the UK. His books have been translated into 30+ languages and sold over 2 million copies in the UK alone.
