The Bolds on Holiday

The Bolds on Holiday

The Bolds are back in a wild new adventure from comedian and author Julian Clary that's sure to have your kids howling with laughter.

About the book (for ages 7+)

In the latest book in the series, The Bolds on Holiday, the hairiest family in Teddington decide to take a well-earned holiday by the seaside. With their extended hyena family in tow, they head on down to Cornwall for a spot of camping. But it's never long before trouble sniffs these hyenas out, and Bobby is soon mistaken for a pup and snatched by a wicked dognapper.

The Bolds will need all their ingenuity to hunt her down and rescue all the pilfered pooches. But can these hyenas-in-disguise save the day, without letting the cat out of the bag…?
