Paul McCartney is sending a green submarine to Liverpool for the day this weekend


Having placed mysterious ads in regional papers, including The Liverpool Echo, to tease publication of his new picture book, Grandude’s Green Submarine, Paul McCartney is now sending a giant green submarine to his beloved hometown for families to enjoy!

On Saturday 2nd October, Paul McCartney’s Green Submarine will dock outside Waterstones Liverpool One to entertain families and mark publication of his new book Grandude’s Green Submarine (illustrated by Kathryn Durst). Young children will be able to meet Grandude and Nandude and have their photo taken in the submarine and the first 55 families to engage with the submarine will be in with a chance of winning one of 5 exclusive signed copies in a nod to it being 55 years since the release of Yellow Submarine.

The green submarine will stay docked in Waterstones, Liverpool One on the Sunday and Monday as well and will find final harbour with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Charity who are delighted that Paul has decided to donate the submarine to them.

Paul said:

‘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!’

The submarine will afterwards be in store from Sunday 3rd – Monday 4th October. In the case of inclement weather the submarine will move in store on the Saturday. It will then find a permanent home with the world famous Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Charity in Liverpool, UK

Grandude’s Green Submarine is the sequel to Hey Grandude! Paul’s debut picture book which became a global bestseller and has been translated into 33 languages. The story continues the adventures of Grandude and his grandchildren as they set off on a quest to find their music-loving grandmother, Nandude! It’s an action-packed extravaganza of wild imagination and fun for all the family, a read-aloud that’s perfect for sharing, destined to become a timeless classic.
