This is a great story. I really like Walliams's work for children, and I am very impressed that a man with no children (yet) is able to really "get" what children like and what they laugh at. All his stories seem to have a slightly maudlin quality at some point, which is a bit cringe-worthy, but this is a great story for the 6 to 10 year old range, and so are all the others he has written. I recommend the audio-books because Walliams reads his own work really well. We are now hoping that he writes a story specifically about Raj the marvellous shopkeeper who pops up in all the books.

Another SUCCESS for David Walliams. Perfect to engage those readers who hate reading. My Class have been caught, 'hook line and sinker' with his books. Ideal for guided reading and audio listening skills in class. My whole class are now looking forward to the next book by David Walliams because they are so caught up with this author's way of writing that captures young minds instantly and is a 110% encouragement to read. Recommended to all class teachers for english and guided reading.

My son & I love this book! He was initially against the idea of David Walliams as he had been reading Jane Johnson books. But after the first chapter he's hooked.

Great book for my 12 year old Grandson, he thinks his Nan is the best!Good stocking filler, viewed David Williams on Jonathon Ross show when he read a short preview, and decided there & then to Purchase Gansta Granny as soon as it came out, when he's read it I think I might borrow it.Great Author.

Judging by the artwork, blurb and reviews on the cover, I thought this would be a good book for my son to read. It all suggests fun and silliness. I hoped he'd find it engaging and entertaining, also that it might encourage him to read more. Sadly, he found the inclusion of cancer and death a bit too disturbing. I was so stunned when he brought this to my attention that I had to read it myself. I would understand more if these issues were addressed in a way that might be helpful, educational or reassuring but this just isn't the case. Towards the end of the book, the protagonist is told that the granny he's grown to love has cancer and that it's so advanced she'll die before Christmas: and she does. I see books as a form of escapism and am sad that my child had to read this: particularly when his own grandmother has been undergoing cancer treatment for the last few months, My son and I just found the cancer/death element (and the way it was written) sad, disappointing and inappropriate.

Format: Hardcover
This book was one of the best books I have ever read. I recommend it for kids from 9-13 it made me laugh for hours at one single line it was written with great thought for a full experience for the reader. Anyone considering buying this is 100% correct it is a great piece of writing that is perfect for improving children's vocabulary. It is a fantastic book and Christmas is coming soon what could be a better gift to a young child than a story that will encourage them to read more and enjoy reading.

I bought for my son, who is almost 10, after he had shown it to me at a school book fair and said they had read an excerpt from it, well, what can I say...I was laughing so much at one chapter I got told off by my son as he couldnt understand what I was saying, I honestly had tears running down my face, mainly because its almost true life. My son has global developmental delay, and is also dyslexic, so classed as a non- reader, but I was really struggling to find a book for his age group that would keep his attention, had a few great illustrations to help him and one that I could enjoy reading to him each night, he had grown out of his other books, (and I had read them so many times was loosing the will to live!) - this book, and have also bought Mr Stink, is just brilliant, for kids and adults alike, there arent many books that can achieve this, and am looking forward to reading them all!!
