The Bolds to the Rescue
From the Series The Bolds
The Bolds—the hyena family successfully impersonating as humans—have become legendary in the animal kingdom. Soon their house is full of visitors hoping to learn how to pass as humans too. There’s a crocodile who can’t quite tame her appetite, a poodle who wants to be a famous singer, and runaway racehorses hiding from their owner. With so many houseguests, the Bolds have their hands (ahem, paws) full. Can they teach these outcast critters to survive in the human world?

School Library Journal
“This series sports the humor of Captain Underpants and the heart of Winnie-the-Pooh . . . . A great choice for any library collection serving kids.”—School Library Journal
“[T]he tale avoids didacticism, delivering its message of tolerance, inclusion, and kindness with irresistibly quirky, anarchic glee. A winner of a sequel, just the ticket for lovers of Roald Dahl.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Like [The Bolds], [The Bolds to the Rescue] can be read on a metaphorical level as a story with satiric edges about cultural outsiders looking for ways to fit in—or just enjoyed for its comical mishaps and broad humor.”—Booklist
