Grandude is back for more adventure!

The children’s book, 火曜日に, follows Grandude — who was inspired by a nickname McCartney’s own eight grandchildren gave him, and his grandchildren (また “Chillersas McCartney calls them) as they set off on a journey to find their music-loving grandmother, Nandude.

“私はその方法に本当に満足しています ちょっとグランデュード! 受け取った, これは私にとって非常に個人的な話だったので, どこでもGrandudesと彼らの孫との関係と冒険を祝う,” the music icon said in a statement. “世界中の就寝時に孫に読まれる本になっているのが大好きです。”

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!” マッカートニーは追加しました.

Canadian artist Kathryn Durst, who also did the artwork for McCartney’s first picture book, 彼女は言った “わくわく” to collaborate again with the Beatles musician on the second installment of the Grandude series.

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,” 彼女は声明で言った. “I really enjoyed drawing the newest character in the book, Nandude, particularly because we both share a love of playing the accordion!”

グランデュードの緑の潜水艦, published under the Random House Books for Young Readers imprint, is available to read now.
