On this Saturday afternoon, we are looking at the upcoming Paul McCartney Hey Grandude! children’s book arriving on September 5th, 2019.
First, you are not alone if finding yourself doing a double take on the title, immediately thinking of the song, “Hey Jude” from The Beatles White Album.
Paul McCartney Hey Grandude! arrives September 5th
At his site announcing Paul McCartney Hey Grandude! is information and link for pre-ordering it, along with “… sneak peek of Paul recording the Hey Grandude! audiobook…”
It begins with the follow excerpt I’m including here.
“UPDATED: Inspired by Paul’s own experience of being a grandude (a name his grandchildren have given him), Hey Grandude! is an action-packed picture book that introduces a magical intrepid explorer grandfather — the eponymous Grandude — and his four grandchildren. Join them as they ride flying fish, dodge stampedes, and escape avalanches. All brought to life with funny, colourful illustrations from talented artist and rising star, Kathryn Durst.
Paul has narrated the audiobook himself, along with composing some exclusive original music which you can also hear in this soundtrack.
Hey Grandude! will be published in hardback, CD and audio download on 5th September 2019…”
As we wrap up, perhaps you already have from 2013 the children’s book Octopus’s Garden by Ringo Starr – which I am saving for a future blog post!
