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 inter-generational romp. 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. Fortunately, for this particular grandchild, while Grandpa's noises might be a mystery to many, he knows just what they mean! For example, Eyenolessgofurawark is obviously Grandpa-speak for I know, let's go for a walk. Aaaahhh means the cup of tea is just perfect, and Pissphusshawertt is that sinking sound Grandpa makes when he needs a rest in his chair. And once you know that Eeeawoscreech! is actually the sound of a misbehaving hearing aid, Grandpa becomes a lot less scary and even more lovable. Of course some sounds - like the Fffffffft that sometimes escapes Grandpa's bottom (and Dad's) - need no explanation!Read more
