"Although Clary plays up the humour the underlying warm message is of tolerance towards those who are supposedly different from the norm. Glorious black-and-white illustrations add to the mayhem." * Daily Mail *
"Joyful" * Telegraph, Best Holiday Reading for Kids *
"Funny and clever with a good dose of yucky humour. Children will appreciate the wry digs at the nonsense of modern living and Roberts' illustrations are an absolute delight." * The Bookseller, Fiona Noble *
"Roberts' manically expressive black and white illustrations capitalize on the unapologetically silly premise... Clary mixes animal fact with imaginative, entertaining fiction." * Publishers Weekly *
"We loved the silliness and laughter that runs throughout, and the illustrations are brilliant. Heaps of fun." * Heat *
"My two children and I all love The Bolds. An allegory for feeling like an outsider and is written in the most imaginative and sensitive way." -- Kate Garraway * Mail on Sunday *
"The animals are amongst us! This lovely book will have kids rolling on the floor with mirth while their parents roll their eyes in recognition of human folly." * Fay Weldon *
"Underscoring the slapstick appeal is a message about understanding others' differences... Fans of Roald Dahl will find much to appreciate here." * School Library Journal *
"This entertaining tale will make readers chortle. A good choice for reluctant readers and fans of Captain Underpants." * Booklist *
