Hugo Eales


Born in Malaysia, Hugo Eales is an English author. His career in accountancy has taken him and his family around the world working for multinational companies. His passion for story telling, and the drive behind creating The Mysterious Noise came from making up bedtime stories for his four boys when they were little.

The boys are all much too old for bedtime stories now, so Hugo decided to put pen to paper. Charlotte and her first adventure came into being as a result of encouraging his sons to use their imaginations when describing what might be making some unusual noises they heard one bedtime. The Mysterious Noise is the first of a series of Mysterious Books brought to life by the fabulous illustrations of Tom Bonson.

Mushroom warriors, Ugly fairies, Bristol giants and Massive monsters too – the picture book characters created by Bristol-based artist Tom Bonson are brimming with life, colour and a bit of light-hearted humour. As well as writing and illustrating children’s stories, Tom has seen his work brought to life in animated apps, animation and books. Check out more of his work at
