Music icon Paul McCartney is about to become a children’s book author—again! the Beatle’s book Hey Grandude! garnered plenty of acclaim. Now McCartney is back with a new title that is another can’t-miss for the kiddos.

Random House Children’s Books in the United States and the UK’s Penguin Random House Children’s Books recently announced the sequel to Hey Grandude!, Grandude’s Green Submarine. The new book continues the adventure McCartney started in Hey Grandude!, telling the tale of a magical grandpa and his grandchildren.

The sequel follows Grandude and his grandkids as they search for Nandude!, the music-loving grandmother. McCartney said of the book, in a press 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.”

The musician/children’s book author continued, “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!”

Grandude’s Green Submarine ($18.99) will make its grand debut on Sep. 2, 2021. McCartney’s book is available for pre-order right now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and from Penguin Random House.
