Children love laughing about body noises. In Grandpa’s Noises, a range of sounds and words coming from body and mouth are explained in a warm and funny intergenerational romp. For example, ‘Eyenolessgofurawark’ is obviously Grandpa-speak for ‘I know, let’s go for a walk’. But some sounds — like the ‘Fffffffft’ that sometimes escapes Grandpa’s bottom — need no explanation!

Gareth St John Thomas has been immersed in the world of books since he started working in his father’s publishing company at the age of 6, packing books. His publishing career has taken him around the world, and since founding Exisle Publishing 25 years ago, he has seen the company grow to distribute its titles in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand. Gareth’s love of seeing the world through the eyes of a child influenced the development of Exisle’s children’s picture book imprint, EK Books, while his education as a historian has guided his approach to publishing social history books throughout his career, and now through Exisle’s newest imprint, Emotional Inheritance.

Colin Rowe is a graphic designer and illustrator with his own company, Corvus Design Services. Throughout his career, Colin’s images for children have appeared in a multitude of marketing publications and products throughout the UK; Grandpa’s Noises is his first adventure into children’s book illustration.

“This month marks 13 years since I left my home country, my family and my loved ones behind to move to Australia. Time really does fly and the saying ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ is totally true as well. My old Opa is now 96 years old and I would give a small fortune to be able to visit him today. Whether you have a grandpa, a poppy, an opa or a pa, this gorgeous EK Books release celebrates the funny side of them all.” Click here to read in full.
