Caring for Pupils, Promoting Success

"The Bolds" by Julian Clary

Oh my word, I loved this book! It really made me chuckle :)

Mr and Mrs Bold are hyenas who leave South Africa and move to a terraced house next door to a very miserable nosy neighbour- Mr McNumpty!

I could really picture the characters trying to hide their tails and wear big hats to keep their identity secret, and they laughed so much- just as hyenas do!

I also loved the fact that Mr. Bold's job was writing the jokes inside Christmas crackers so the book was interspersed with silly jokes!

A great read!!
