At first glance the Bolds look like a normal family. Mr and Mrs Bold and their two children Betty and Bobby live in a semi detached house, in an ordinary suburban street. 41 Fairfield Road in Teddington to be exact. Yep everything seems pretty normal… until I tell you… the Bolds are in fact hyenas dressed in human clothes.
This hilarious story was written by the comedian and life-long animal lover Julian Clary. His words have been brought to life brilliantly by David Roberts, with each character lovingly drawn in great detail, often with extra funny jokes hidden in the background.
It’s now been longlisted for the 2016 Kate Greenaway prize, and rightly so.
