About The Books:

‘The Bolds’ was named the Sunday Times Book of the Week, was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2016, and was called ‘glorious’ by the Daily Mail. Mr and Mrs Bold are just like you and me: they live in a nice house (in Teddington), they have jobs (like writing Christmas cracker jokes) and they love to have a bit of a giggle. One slight difference: they’re hyenas. Yes, that’s right – they’re covered in fur, have tails tucked into their trousers, and they really, really like to laugh. So far, the Bolds have managed to keep things under wraps, even when their children Bobby and Betty were born. But the nosy man next door smells a rat (or a hyena), and a trip to the local wildlife park, and the brilliantly wacky heist that results, could be the end of Teddington’s best-kept secret. Whatever will the neighbours think?

Praise for ‘The Bolds‘:

‘Clary writes at a quick-fire pace, with short, snappy sentences and lots of jokes.’ – The Telegraph
‘Bursting with fun.’ – The Guardian
‘I wished we lived next door to The Bolds!’ – Davina McCall
