Twelve-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?

    " We listened to this as a book on tape out to our family reunion. The writing was very clever and the book itself was at times laugh out loud funny. The story itself started out enjoyable but turned a little bizarre. I thought it got a little dark for kids. But still really funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 2/7/2014

    " Frankly, it has its overly gruesome moments (which boys may love), but I found it overall to be rather funny. It has some of the same silly humor and one-liners that fans of the Diamond Brothers mysteries have come to expect. Sure, it's not great literature, but I think kids will probably enjoy it. "

    " eh really creepy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raina | 2/1/2014

    " Silly old-fashioned story about a brit boy with an evil granny. He has aristocratic and disinterested parents who leave him with the granny for a vacation. The voice could coexist in such worlds as Unfortunate Events and other old-fashioned (but modern) worlds. A little politically incorrect at times. A lot of tongue-in-cheek humor. Very different from Horowitz' other stuff. Recently reissued with a fresh, cool cover. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cole | 9/25/2013

    " Anthony Horowitz did a good job of grossing and freaking me out with this one. Some of the comedy is sick, but the book was written well. If you like the comedy, gross-out books, I would personally recommend Granny. My fellow classmates wouldn't give you that same answer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. Nannini Crossroads South | 8/19/2013

    " Granny is bit different than Horowitz' other books but funny and a little scary. This was a very quick read. "

    " Very, very freaky at some points in the story. The author is so good at writing. The author is Anthony Horowitz, I have read so many of his books and I really love them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stargazer | 3/2/2013

    " I'd probably read dahl's 'the witches' rather than this one, but kids might enjoy reading it themselves. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Inge | 1/17/2013

    " Ever wonder what the Series of Unfortunate Events would look like if it was executed without any cleverness? Look no further. "
