About the book...
The New York Times bestseller from Paul McCartney–an action-packed picture-book adventure celebrating the fun that grandparents and grandkids can get up to.

See the compass needle spin, let the magic fun begin!

Meet Grandude–a super-cool grandfather who is an intrepid explorer with some amazing tricks up his sleeve. Grandude is a one-of-a-kind adventurer! With his magic compass, he whisks his four grandkids off on whirlwind adventures, taking them all around the globe. Join them as they ride flying fish, dodge stampedes, and escape avalanches! Brought to life with gloriously colorful illustrations from talented artist Kathryn Durst, it’s the perfect bedtime story for little explorers.


The kiddos are having a bit of a rough day.  Why?  Well, it's blustery and gloomy outside, so they're all stuck inside...or so they think.  Enter stage right...their effervescent Grandude, and boy does he ever have an adventure for them!  All he needs is a postcard or two, his "magic" compass, a few fun rhyming magical words, and ZING, BANG, SIZZLE...things get QUITE a bit more interesting.  From lazy days at the shore to outrunning a heard of wild buffalo, traipsing snow capped peaks to hitching a ride on a flying cow, Grandude shows this intrepid bunch that ANYTHING can happen with a bit of imagination.

This was such a fun read!  You can't help but get caught up in the magic and mayhem of it all as adventure after adventure proves at first exciting, then a little trying, and finally exhausting as they make their way home once again.  Grandude reminds us that we're never caught inside on a rainy day unless we truly wish to be, while also showing just how much wisdom our elders are keeping beneath their proverbial hats just waiting to be discovered curious loved ones who care to know.

With a charming story and brightly colored full page illustrations worthy of a second glance at least, this is one Picture Book you should make room for on your bookshelves this season.
