Gangsta Granny

Ben has a big problem: his granny is a gangsta! (not a gangster) But of course Ben doesn't know. He thinks his granny is a kind of a textbook granny: she loves cabbage, she plays Scrabble and she always has a scrunched up tissue in her cardigan. But this granny has an enemy. There's a spy called Mr Parker. He thinks that shes breaking the law. So Ben's granny lies to him all about the gangtsa thing to keep him away from Mr Parker. Ben is a moderate boy and he hates dancing because of his Mum and his Dad. Every Friday his Mum and Dad leave Ben round his granny's house beacause they either watch Strictly Stars Dancing or go ballroom dancing. Even if he doesn't like his granny he still has to go. Ben's dream is to become a plumber. If theres a broken pipe he will fix it. When he goes round his granny's house he buys this comic called plumbing weekly.
