The Bolds – Book Review

The Bolds – Book Review

The Bolds are much like any other family – with regular jobs writing Christmas cracker jokes, and children. They live in the suburb of Teddington, in West London, and live their lives much like any other British family. However, the Bolds are different from other Londoners in a very small way – they’re not humans, they’re hyenas.

They have managed to hide their true identity by making sure their tails are firmly tucked into their pants and ears covered by caps. They became the Bolds quite by accident, after taking the place of the real Bolds after they were eaten by a crocodile in front of them. Having learnt English by watching hordes of tourists visit the African Savanah each year, the new Bolds fit right in.

A prying neighbour poses a big threat to the well-crafted life they have built and the Bolds jump into hilarious action. The book is peppered with silly, cheesy, child-friendly jokes and is a howler (pun intended) of a book. Complimenting the wonderful storytelling are beautiful illustrations and will leave children roaring with laughter.

Cheeky jokes and tongue-in-cheek comments are slipped in quietly for parents wanting to enjoy the book, making it a wonderful family read.
