When a family of hyenas poses as a human family called the Bolds—living in a suburban house, going to work and school, concealing their animal features under strategic clothing—the whole neighbourhood is in for an adventure. Whether they're fooling the local police or helping other animals "pass" as human, hilarity inevitably ensues. Written by world renowned comedian Julian Clary and brought to laugh-out-loud life by illustrator David Roberts, each book involves more zany fun for the Bolds and their friends.
This story reveals the remarkable life of a Native American boy named Wassaja, or "Beckoning," who was kidnapped from his Yavapai tribe and sold as a slave. Adopted by an Italian photographer in 1871 and renamed Carlos Montezuma, the young boy traveled throughout the Old West, bearing witness to the prejudice against and poor treatment of Native Americans. Carlos eventually became a doctor and leader for his people, calling out for their rights. Gina Capaldi's exquisite paintings bring to life excerpts from Dr. Carlos Montezuma's own letters describing his childhood experiences. The culminating portrait provides an inventive look back into history through the eyes of a Native American hero.
