Gangsta Granny the story

If you’ve ever read the book or seen the play, you’ll know what Gangsta Granny is all about. If not, then listen up.

It’s about a boy called Ben who doesn’t like staying at his Granny’s house every Friday because he finds it boring and he never gets nice food (cabbage soup and cabbage chocolate aren’t the best!). There’s no working TV and his dream of becoming a plumber isn’t so well received by his parents who want him to aspire to be a ballet dancer. One Friday, Ben begs his parents to take him home, his Granny overhears this and gets upset, believing her grandson doesn’t love her.

The next morning Ben is in search of some choccie biscuits after not having the best breakfast and when he finds the biscuit tins, it feels heavier than normal… When he opens it, he discovers a whole mound of jewels, gems and diamonds. How has his Granny come by this? Ben now becomes eager to stay over again, so he can find out what’s going on. But his Granny is now too busy for him…

Will he find out what his Granny is up to?
