About the Author

Deborah Kerbel is the critically acclaimed, award-winning author of several books for young people of all ages, including Before You Were Born, Fred and Marjorie, Slow Moe, Swish Slosh and Grumble Yawn. Her books have been shortlisted for the Governor General's Literary Award, the Canadian Library Association's YA Book Award and the Forest of Reading Blue Spruce Award, among others. Deborah was born in London, England, and raised in Toronto, where she now lives with her family.

Jacqui Lee's illustrations are focused on storytelling and are inspired by the world around her. Jacqui's I Am Josephine was a CCBC Best Book for Kids and Teens, and she was awarded an Alcuin Society Award for Excellence in Book Design for Murilla Gorilla and the Hammock Problem. Her work is fun, cheerful and aims to bring a smile to people's faces. She loves the handmade and textural look of gouache paint and often carries a sketchbook with her, especially while travelling. An alumnus of the Alberta University of the Arts, she now lives in London, UK.


"Young readers will reach for Grumble, Yawn time and time again. The fun onomatopoeic rhythmic sounds help to bring a new meaning to these words in an enjoyable way. It's the perfect book to read before bedtime and an equally perfect book to add to your bookshelf. Highly Recommended."
