Paul McCartney Announces New Children's Book 'Grandude's Green Submarine'

Every Beatles fan knows about the "Yellow Submarine," but now, Paul McCartney has announced there's a green submarine, too.

In 2019, McCartney published the illustrated children's book Hey Grandude! Two years later, the Beatles member has just penned a sequel to the book called Grandude's Green Submarine. The story is set for a September 2, 2021 release.

According to a press release, the new book “continues the adventures of Grandude and his grandchildren as they set off on a quest to find their music-loving grandmother, Nandude!” In the book series, Grandude is a magical grandfather who takes his four grandchildren - who he calls his "chillers" - on various exciting quests.

According to the publisher's book description, the green submarine is a magical vehicle that takes Grandude and his family flying through the sky, riding on a river through a jungle, and deep under the ocean in search of their grandma.

"Hey Grandude!...was a very personal story for me, celebrating Grandudes everywhere and their relationships and adventures with their grandchildren," McCartney said in a statement. "I love that it has become a book read to grandkids at bedtime all around the world."

The new book is illustrated by Kathryn Durst. Besides Grandude's Green Submarine, McCartney will release the new album McCartney III Imagined on April 16. After that, he will publish another book, The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present, on November 2.
