Paul McCartney Announces Sequel To Children’s Book ‘Hey Grandude!’

March 22, 2021

Paul McCartney has announced that “Grandude’s Green Submarine,” a sequel to his internationally bestselling “Hey Grandude!” picture book, will be published on September 2.

“Hey Grandude!,” McCartney’s first picture book, was published to global success in September 2019. 300,000 copies of the book were sold with translations in 32 languages. It introduced a magical grandpa – the eponymous Grandude – who was inspired by a nickname Paul’s own eight grandchildren had given him.

Announcing the forthcoming publication, Penguin Random House Children’s UK and Random House Children’s Books in the US said that “Grandude’s Green Submarine” continues the adventures of Grandude and his grandchildren as they set off on a quest to find their music-loving grandmother, Nandude.

“It’s an action-packed extravaganza of wild imagination and fun for all the family, a read-aloud that’s perfect for sharing, destined to become a timeless classic,” according to the publishers.

“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,” McCartney said.

The Beatle added “I always said if people liked the first book and there was an appetite for more I would write some further adventures for Grandude.”

The book will be illustrated by rising star Kathryn Durst.
