Gangsta Granny was published in 2011 and was shortlisted for The Red House Children’s Book Award and for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in the same year.

Gangsta Granny is the story of Ben, a bored 11-yea- old, who hates having to stay in with his old, cabbage-obsessed Granny every Friday night playing Scrabble while his parents go out ballroom dancing.

But when he accidentally discovers Gran’s exciting secret, Ben becomes part of the biggest, most daring crime caper ever planned!

Suddenly Friday nights become the best part of his whole week!
