Summary

A family of hyenas live like humans despite a suspicious neighbour and they rescue an elderly hyena from a wildlife park

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 nosey 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?

NOTE : Some pages are white text printed on black dyed paper; the ink may leech onto fingers

NOTE : References a natural habit of hyenas to mark territory with scent glands in their bottoms

NOTE: Longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2016
