Since writing his first song at the age of fourteen, Paul McCartney
has had an impossibly prolific and singularly influential career.
In the 1960s, Paul changed the world forever with The Beatles. He
didn't stop there, continuing to push boundaries as a solo artist,
with Wings, and through collaborations with numerous world-renowned
artists. He has received eighteen Grammys, and in 1997 was knighted
by Her Majesty the Queen for his services to music. Paul's most
recent album, Egypt Station, was his first one to debut at
#1 on the Billboard charts.
Paul is a dedicated philanthropist, passionately advocating for many causes, including animal rights and environmental issues. He's also a very proud grandfather.

"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." --
