Publisher's Summary

Mr and Mrs Bold are just like you and me: they live in a nice house, they have jobs and they love to have a giggle. One slight difference: they're hyenas. That’s right - covered in fur, tails tucked into their trousers, and they really like to laugh.

So far the Bolds have managed to keep things under wraps. But the nosy man next door smells a rat. Could this be the end of Teddington's best-kept secret?

Critic Reviews

"Funny and clever with a good dose of yucky humour. Children will appreciate the wry digs at the nonsense of modern living." ( The Bookseller)

I love this book

It was so funny I love that the Bold’s are Hyena’s. I was surprised when Mr McNumpty said he was a bear but I’ve listened to it so much I’ve memorised it now!
