Activity Writing Rib-tickling Tales
In the interview, Julian says that he came up with the idea ofThe Boldsseries as a child, and he based the characters around his family.
Imagine your family were animals. What kind of animals would they be? How would their character traits transfer to the animal kingdom?
Think about whether they would have to hide their true identity from friends and neighbours. How would they do this and what kind of trouble could they get into?
Once youve thought about the points above, start writing a funny story about the adventures your family would get up to. Dont forget to channel David Roberts and illustrate your story too!
