    "Gangsta granny is great!"

    From the beginning I was laughing. I will never try cabbage soup but I do want to play scrabble with gangsta grannie. She is so good at telling stories and I liked it best when she decided to steal the crown jewels. I'm 7 and I loved it, even the ending. I asked my grannie to help me steal the crown jewels but she had an appointment at the hairdressers. Children and mummies and daddies will love this book. Listen to it today!

    "Great Family Story"

    Gangsta Granny is a great book which I enjoyed listening to as much as my seven year old son and five year old daughter. David Walliams' story has many of the same qualities which appeal to children in Roald Dahl's books. It is funny and rather irreverent with great characters thrown into an exciting adventure.

    "A Good Book for Everyone on a Long Car Journey"

    Having 2 7 year old kids and a 5 hours car ride ahead of us, this was the ideal book for us all to listen to. David Walliams narrates and helps bring the book to life for all. The story line is fun and with some good take aways for the kids. It especially handles the death of the Granny well. Now where was that cabbage soup?

    Story
    "Walliams never let's us down, but I prefer others"
    Would you try another book written by David Walliams or narrated by David Walliams?

    Yes yes & already did and do


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Oh, you will never guess what happened ...... We'll granny was a ..... It is a Fun Book


    Have you listened to any of David Walliams’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I prefer others to be fair, boy in the dress is the BEST. If it were possible to wear out a digital download i would be buying a new one.
    My daughter still LOLs every time that she listens.
    David doesn't fail in my book (pun most definitely intended)


    Could you see Gangsta Granny being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    Yeah I suppose so. I would like to see David in it. Julie waters would be a must! Theo Stevenson for starters .... If they make the film and these get cast I want on the casting couch ... It was my idea first!


    Any additional comments?

    Bring on the film. Can't wait to be on the team

    Would you listen to Gangsta Granny again? Why?

    This book was hilarious! I just had to listen to it once more as soon as it was finished. :)


    What does David Walliams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    David is a brilliant voice artist and he really brought an already good and funny book to an even higher level.
