Inhoud

"He could see it in the wicked glimmer in her eyes, in the half-turned corner of her mouth. And it was so strong, so horrible that he shivered. She was evil."
Twelve-year-old Joe Warden isn't happy. He has rich, uncaring parents and a granny, who is not only physically repulsive, but horribly mean. She has the look of a predatory crocodile and Joe suspects that she has unpleasant designs for him!

Bespreking

A big smooch from granny

The Wardens are on the run. Not for the evil tax collector. Not for the police. Not even for a flood or any other natural mayhem. No, they are running away from something wicked and far more painful: their Granny. Joe Warden never really liked his granny. Certainly not when she widened her legs and crouched down slightly with her arms open waiting to be kissed! No words could describe the feel of her skin against his lips and that taste, that gruesome taste of nearly dead, grey skin. And this time it is far worse, because Joe thinks his granny is up to something. Is Joe going to become the ultimate sacrifice?

Let is be known: Anthony Horowitz is Roald Dahl incarnated! If this was not yet clear from his other works, it becomes too obvious while reading Granny. The ease with which Anthony gives life to his characters is simply amazing. With a few lines he is capable of drawing an evil granny that becomes frightening to even the most mature adult. His narrative is filled venomous comments that will force you to do more than just smile. On top of this all, you get a storyline that is thrilling and extremely imaginative. To summarise: Granny is 150 pages of pure fun! A must read!
