Paul McCartney Announces New Children's Book 'Grandude's Green Submarine'
The illustrated story is a sequel to his 2019 kids' book 'Hey Grandude!'
Published Mar 18, 2021Paul McCartney has announced the sequel to his 2019 picture book Hey Grandude! Titled Grandude's Green Submarine, the next instalment is set to arrive on September 2 through Random House Children's Books.
Illustrated by Ontario's Sheridan College grad and accordion player, Kathryn Durst, McCartney's new book "continues the adventures of Grandude and his grandchildren as they set off on a quest to find their music-loving grandmother, Nandude!"
McCartney said of the release:
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. 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!
Durst added, "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!"
