Julian Clary’s stupendously silly saga continues with a visit from the ferocious Granny Imamu and a hilarious return to nature for the lovable hyenas. Fizzing with its author’s delicious wit and blessed with cracking artwork from David Roberts, The Bolds Go Wild is another very welcome addition to a beloved series.
The Bolds are very surprised to be visited by Fred's mother, Granny Imamu. She's travelled all the way from the Serengeti, and now she's here, she does not approve of what she finds. Hyenas, living as people - whatever next!
Granny Imamu starts to stir up mischief with the twins, encouraging them to get in touch with their beastly side at school. And then the twins' teacher comes to the Bolds with a rather unusual problem: her grown-up son Jeffrey just isn't like other people. He's rather hairy, doesn't much like to talk, and loves to monkey about.
If animals can become people, could it happen the other way around . . . ?

'Laugh-out-loud funny.' - The Independent
'The story is deliciously bonkers, the illustrations just as witty and full of quirky detail, and the Bolds' live-and-let-live philosophy is a breath of fresh air in our quarrelsome times.

'Humour for both young and young-at-heart, a great summer read.' - Families Magazine
