Book Description

12 Jan 1995
12-year-old Jordan Warden isn't happy. He has rich, uncaring parents and is virtually a prisoner in the huge family mansion, Thattlebee Hall. Worst of all though, is his granny. Not only is she physically repulsive, she's horribly mean. Even so Joe is shocked by the malicious gleam in her eye as she gives him a Christmas present fit for a two-year-old. It's the look of a predatory crocodile, and Joe starts to suspect that Granny has unpleasant designs on him. But what are they and how can he foil them? All is revealed in this story. Anthony Horowitz has written several books for children, including "Groosham Grange" - Winner of the 1990 Lancashire Book Award, "The Falcon's Malteser" and "South by South East".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 17 July 2008
Format:Paperback
Got a zany sense of humour? Yeah? You'll love this book. Doesn't matter what age you are, this book is hilarious. It has a writing style that teenagers and below could keep up with. But don't fret adults! Any adult who can appreciate the wacky genius in some good off the wall humour will enjoy this litlle gem.

It's both dark and daft. It's Cable Guy meeting Scary movie. Granny is a harebrained old woman, sinister in her motives. She's on the prowl, terrorising young Joe. Can he uncover her unscrupulous agenda? Or will her constant provoking finish him off?

The imagination in this book is just stupendous. The author creates a surreal plot which is so barmy it will make you laugh and resonate with those cringy nerves that need a good old rattle every now and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars GLORIOUSLY GRUESOME 7 Feb 2011
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Guaranteed to have most children shrieking with laughter, especially if they are fans of Roald Dahl.

No subtleties here. Unashamedly OTT, Anthony Horowitz creates here a granny to make the blood curdle - eating habits reminiscent of a cement mixer; perfume like rotting sheep; so adept at stealing, a metal detector has to be installed. These are just the nicer aspects, the rest decidedly unpleasant - as with her dastardly plans for grandson Jordan....

Fun. Readers will delight that their own grandmothers do not cause dogs to howl and the sun to go in.

One revelation saddens. Anthony Horowitz's grandmother had been monstrous, her long life devoted to creating unhappiness. Memories still jab. By amusing others so greatly, the book is an attempt to make those recollections less painful. I do hope he succeeded.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hilarious and scary book. I love it! 15 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I think this book is great! The Auther has created a scary and evil old hag who happens to be Jordan Warden's Granny. The book is funny and scary at the same time. Don't let your Granny read this because she might be a bit offended! Anthony Horowitz is a brilliant writer, his writing is similar to Roald Dahl's but better. I recommened it (as if it isn't already obvious!) By Jenny Wilson

4.0 out of 5 stars Granny 27 Jan 2014

I thought it was a brilliant book and it was a shorter book than the other books. It was quite scary and I would recommend it to others ages between 8-and above.
