Critic Reviews

“Hanging out with grandad turns out to be anything but boring.... Readers will roll up for repeats, and not just because of the name on the cover." (Kirkus)

"This picture book debut from the musical icon hits all the right notes in the tale of a cool grandfather, his magical compass, and his grandchildren." (Publishers Weekly)

"McCartney does a fine job of upping the ante at each stop...the diverse group of chillers dash, crash, scurry, worry, and laugh about the magical events. In the end, it's golden slumbers, but the promise of future adventures is in the air.” (Booklist)

Cute Story.. Well Done.. Bravo

Enjoyed the bit of music at the beginning and the end. I thought the narration was great and the story was well written with vivid descriptions of the action taking place. I hope Grandude has a lot more adventures.

Cute!

Macca uses his passion for whimsy well here. The story is pretty standard picture book affair, but Paul's performance is delightful, and the production on the audiobook is terrific.

Loved Hey Grandude!

As a Paul McCartney fan since 1962, when he inspired me to start taking guitar lessons at the age of 10, I loved “Hey Grandude!” It is especially meaningful to me after our only child, just confided some very special news to us after returning from her honeymoon in Europe a few weeks ago! Planning on taking our new extended family from California to London and Liverpool in the summer of 2020 to celebrate!

Maybe I’m Amazed...

Paul is one of the most brilliant writers of all time. He masters his art again w/ ‘Hey, Grandude!’. In the audiobook, you can hear his pure excitement and happiness reading the story. Much love!

Simply lovely!

I own this book and, although the illustrations are delightful, there is nothing better than hearing the story told in Paul’s voice. Just lovely!

Grandude Rules!

I loved it, and I absolutely adore listening to Paul read the story. He excells with expression with each character. I personally love his voice and British accent. The story is very well written with imagination and full of whitty humor. The best part; the end when Paul snores. I bet not to many can say they heard Paul snore. He is a CLASS act.
