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...
Fantastic book! Highly recommend for any young readers!
I bought this for my son (who has ASD) in April 2017 and he has reread it about 12+ times since! He absolutely loves David Walliams! Fantastic author, knows how to write in a way that keeps kids engaged with the characters and wanting more!
Another great kids book from David Walliams, such fun.
I bought this book for my 10 year old grand-daughter & enjoyed reading it myself. Great fun & wonderful characters.
