Five Get Gran Online

By Bruno Vincent

  • Hardback
  • £7.99

Next in the Enid Blyton for Grown-Ups series as Julian, George, Dick, Anne and Timmy the dog become caught in a web of confusion, frustration and failure . . . and Gran becomes an overnight sensation.

From the author of Number One Christmas bestseller, Five on Brexit Island, join the Five in their next hilarious adventure in this bestselling series for grown-ups!


The Five go north to see their grandmother who is alone over the Easter weekend. They're shocked to find it's been so long that they don't recognise her at all. While they're there, they try to help her with her computer. They try first to fix her iTunes account, and then her internet banking - after all it's the least they can do! However everything they touch turns to dust. They end up getting her cut off from the internet, the gas and the electricity, and reduced to a World War II-style privations - that is until the toddler from next door comes in and fixes everything. They return home somewhat with their tails between their legs, only to discover that with their help Gran has learned to make videos, and has become an internet sensation.
