I've really been enjoying this series. Clever and funny while addressing a real life lesson. A simple lesson, sure, but the reader takes away more than just simple entertainment. This particular volume is a bit darker, addressing bigotry and abuse.

The Bolds in Trouble was a fun book to read. It does start off a bit slow at first, but once this family makes the acquaintance of a few foxes that is when things get interesting. They try to warn them, but one of the refuses to listen. Once they get in a bad situation this family is more than happy to help them. Although their intentions were good this only ends up making things harder for this family. Finding a way to get them out of their house will be one of the hardest things they have ever faced. I can see most readers have a great time reading this book.

The Bolds in Trouble is a fun read for younger children. I read this with my second grade daughter and she loved it! She would beg for "just one more chapter" every night. The jokes told by Mr. Bold and spread throughout the book were a wonderful bonus in addition to a fun and interesting plot.

This book was received as an ARC from Lerner Publishing Group - Carolrhoda Books ® in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

I have read many books of the Bolds' series and it has mixed reviews with our patrons. Most of them are scared of the characters, one of them said that the whole idea of having animals live a human lifestyle is outrageous and made no sense at all. However, adding the extra plot of a unknown fox that has been eating the plants and disturbing the neighbors and Mrs. Bold said that she LOVES foxes added an interesting plot twist that I don't think young readers will expect and after I finished the book, I was shockingly surprised on how well executed this book was.

We will consider adding this title to our JFiction collection at the library. That is why we give this book 4 stars.

I love these stories! So funny! I think 2-4 graders will enjoy these tales of animals living like humans.I mean, really, thee are animals who want to be humans- they dress like peeps, hold jobs, use forks and knife and spoons- whole 9 yards!  In this installment of the series, the Bolds and their friends try to save 2 neighborhood fox. One fox has no interest in being saved which causes quite a issue with the family. How can they change it's mind??? And Papa Bold tells the awfullest jokes, the kind kids will be roaring over! Love the illustrations, too
