Paul McCartney to release new picture book ‘Grandude’s Green Submarine’

Former Beatle, Paul McCartney, is releasing a brand new book entitled Grandude’s Green Submarine.

The new project arrives as a follow-up to the 2019 children’s book Hey Grandude! and, according to a press release, the latest effort “continues the adventures of Grandude and his grandchildren as they set off on a quest to find their music-loving grandmother, Nandude!”

Speaking about the project, Macca said: “I’m really happy with how Hey Grandude! was received as this was a very personal story for me, celebrating Grandudes everywhere and their relationships and adventures with their grandchildren.”

He continued: “I love that it has become a book read to grandkids at bedtime all around the world. I always said if people liked the first book and there was an appetite for more I would write some further adventures for Grandude – so he’s back and this time with his special invention, Grandude’s green submarine!”

McCartney worked with illustrator Kathryn Durst, who added: “I am so thrilled to be collaborating with Paul again on Grandude’s Green Submarine. I think this is the adventure book we all need during this time, when everyone is stuck at home and longing to travel to exciting new places.

“I really enjoyed drawing the newest character in the book, Nandude, particularly because we both share a love of playing the accordion.”
