Product details

Product description


He might look just like a regular grandad, although Grandude is anything but.

When his grandchildren come to stay, he pulls out all the stops to make sure "Chillers" Lucy, Tom, Em and Bob have an incredible time.

This includes days at the beach where they ride on flying fish.

But how does he do it? Surely there's magic in the air?

A charming tale from the music legend - with the most glorious illustrations that will be enjoyed by old and young.

(Natasha Harding The Sun 2019-09-13)

He's famous for penning some of the world's best-known anthems. But now Sir Paul McCartney has turned his imagination to children's fiction. Inspired by his own experience of being a 'Grandude' of eight, the picture book sees four youngsters and their grandfather travel the world on a host of magical adventures. Accompanied by Kathryn Durst's colourful illustrations, it's sure to take pride of place on any little one's bookshelf. (KLF OK! Magazine 2019-09-10)

On September 5th, Hey Grandude! was released as Paul McCartney's debut picture book. This picture book (ideal for ages 4-6) is an action packed adventure that will take the reader on a magical trip around the world. Beautifully illustrated by Kathyryn Durst, young readers will be awed by where Grandude takes his grandchildren next! Will it be a beach or on the mountainside? How do they get there?

The book begins with Grandude who is spending a weekend with his four grandchildren, Lucy, Tom, Em and Bob. They are bored on a rainy day and are seeking an adventure. Can Grandude save the day?

With his magical compass and postcards, there are endless possibilities!

Hey Grandude! is a delightful and fun picture book that young readers will love because it sparks a child's imagination. Most children wish they can travel in an instant to any place they want to go! In Hey Grandude! they can.

Grandude is not your everyday kind of grandfather. True, he has some stereotypical grandfather characteristics. He lives in a very normal house in a very normal street. He has snow-white hair and a tendency to fall asleep in his armchair. But, he also has something extraordinary and utterly amazing: he owns a magical compass!

When his 4 grandchildren (whom he fondly nicknames The Chillers) are staying over for the weekend and the weather is dull, even Grandude's house full of music, books and artefacts doesn't provide enough distraction to prevent boredom from setting in. The Chillers' energy levels are low... Until Grandude pulls out his magical compass and a pile of postcards. The start of a dazzling trip around the world!

Grandude turns out to be a fearless explorer. Using his magical compass, he guides The Chillers from one continent to the next where they experience crazy adventures and narrowly escape from great dangers. Thankfully, Grandude makes sure that his Chillers return back home sound and safe, and well in time for bed :). That Grandude, he definitely is a bit of a legend in the grandfather department!

The compelling story of the new picture book 'Hey Grandude!' is rhythmically written in an upbeat tempo, which is no surprise if you consider that the author of the book is another bit of a legend (but not just in the grandfather department): the one and only Paul McCartney! How wonderful that Paul has extended his infinite talents to a new-to-him field, children's books!

With wonderful, colourful illustrations by the well-known Canadian illustrator Kathryn Durst, the book is a real pageturner. You just want to find out what will happen next!

'I wanted to write it for grandparents everywhere - and the kids - so it gives you something to read to the grandkids at bed time.' Paul McCartney says. Indeed, 'Hey Grandude!' is the ideal grandparent gift. But this book also makes a lovely addition to the family library!
