There are wonderful new laughs as the Bolds, the hairiest family in Teddington, set off on holiday. The extended Bold family – that’s Mr and Mrs, the twins Bobby and Betty, Uncle Tony whom they rescued from a safari park and Miranda a monkey who was rescued too - are going camping in Cornwall. Simple enough except that the Bolds have a very BIG secret. Will they be able to keep everything they need hidden while they are away? Being the Bolds, things are bound to go wrong – and they do especially when Bobby is mistaken for a puppy and snatched by a notorious dognapper! David Roberts’s brilliant illustrations make the most of Julian Clary’s riotous story. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Carry on camping with dream team Julian Clary and David Roberts! It's the summer holidays, and 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 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...?
