Description Description

Grandpas make a lot of strange noises. There’s ‘schluuupglubshlurrrpglub’, ‘creak pop’, ‘hooonkkkkkkksnnoooortttttt’, and of course ‘eeeaswoscrreech!’ But what on earth do they all mean? Join Grandpa on his daily adventures to learn why he makes all of his mysterious noises.

From thanking Grandma for a cup of tea to saying hello, Grandpa has his own unique way of expressing himself. Children will love finding out what each creak and pop means, and will be able to understand their own grandparents even better! Of course, the noises coming out of Grandpa’s bottom will also provide hours of entertainment.

In Grandpa’s Noises, a range of sounds and words coming from body and mouth are explained through a warm, funny and colourful ‘day in the life’ story. Children look at life with open, honest eyes but sometimes it takes a bit of thinking and code-breaking to work out what’s really going on. Vibrant illustrations and lively lettering combine to provide a ‘Grandpa dictionary’ so that readers, along with Grandpa’s cat and particularly in-the-know grandchild, can discover just what his various exclamations mean. Afterall, once you know that ‘eeeawoscreech!’ is actually the sound of a misbehaving hearing aid, Grandpa becomes a lot less scary and even more lovable!
