Walliams’ new book, once again illustrated by Tony Ross, returns to the world of Gangsta Granny with a mystery adventure featuring his hero, Ben, and many of the original cast of characters.

She was a cabbage enthusiast, a Scrabble partner … and an international jewel thief known as The Black Cat.

Now, only the memory of their extraordinary adventure to steal the Crown Jewels lives on.

Then something inexplicable happens.

World-famous treasures are stolen in the dead of night and the clues point to none other than The Black Cat! But that’s impossible …?

Expect the unexpected in this wonderfully entertaining and laugh-out-loud adventure, which will have readers on the edge of their seats as they join Ben on his quest to unravel the mystery of the return of The Black Cat.

“I have never written a sequel to one of my stories before,” Walliams said. “I was waiting until I had an idea that felt special.

“Once I had come up with the central idea I couldn’t wait to start. This was a joy to write and I hope it will be a joy to read too.

“It is a love letter to all the grannies of the world.”
