Publisher's Summary

The Bolds are a family of hyenas living as humans in a suburban house. But now their kindness to animal waifs and strays has become legendary, and more and more animals keep turning up to stay!

But when the Bolds take in a couple of racehorses who are on the run, they worry their animal magnetism is getting to be too much. Have these hyenas bitten off more than they can chew?

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, on The Bolds)

'I like it when they go to the fete'

My daughter (5yo) loves The Bolds series. She says 'I like when The Bolds house gets really full with animals. I love Mr Bold's jokes, and i love Betty and all the adventures her family have. I am learning new things to say, thanks to listening to The Bolds like when my Mummy was not having a nice time with someone at her work i said 'I'd like to take a strip off him' - which is what Sheila says about about Dodgy Dean. Listening to The Bolds is very fun and good and playful. Sometimes even a bit naughty. (Like all the sniffing bottoms).'

A perfect listen.

We loved the story very much, real family fun full of laughter. So happy that we found it. Ten cheers for the story and the reader.
