LoveReading View on Granny Samurai, the Monkey King and I

January 2013 Debut of the Month  

There are loads of great laughs in this wild story of a granny with a difference. Samuel Johnson who ‘scribes’ this story has the misfortune to turn up at a new school and find himself sitting next to Boris Hizzocks – a boy born to violence and continuing to live by it. But he has the good luck to know the remarkable Granny Samurai. Armed with a walking stick with very unusual extra powers, Granny Samurai keeps Samuel safe!



Granny Samurai, the Monkey King and I Synopsis

This is a quirky, off-beat comedy about a boy scribe, a kick-ass granny and a primate with a vendetta...Eccentric young wordsmith Samuel Johnson finds himself home alone while his diplomat uncle is off diverting a crisis in Azerbajan. As Samuel sits penning his memoirs and wondering how to divert the crisis in his own life - namely the big, hairy brute that is Boris Hissocks - he spots the little old lady next door acting very strangely. Is she actually chopping wood with her bare hands? Then the Monkey King comes knocking, and suddenly Samuel's whole world is turned on its head...
