Paul McCartney’s New Children’s Book, ‘Hey Grandude’

Share This:

Paul McCartney has published his first picture book. Hey Grandude!, from Penguin Books’ Puffin imprint in the U.K. and Random House Books For Young Readers in the U.S., is described as “the story of a super-cool Grandad who takes his four grandchildren on a whirlwind magical mystery tour, from tropical seas to Alpine mountains, all before bedtime.”

The story, inspired by McCartney‘s own experiences of being a grandfather, is brought to life with colorful illustrations from artist, Kathryn Durst.

McCartney has narrated the audiobook edition, along with composing some exclusive original music for the soundtrack.
