The book follows the main character Grandude and his four grandchildren who he calls “Chillers.” In a video announcement, the music legend explains that he was inspired by his own eight grandchildren, who call him “Grandude.” “I wanted to write it for grandparents everywhere – and the kids – so it gives you something to read to the grandkids at bedtime,” McCartney notes in the video.
