'Zing, Bang, Sizzle' Paul's first picture book Hey Grandude! is out now in Hardback and Audiobook!

Inspired by Paul’s own experience of being a grandude (a name his grandchildren have given him), Hey Grandude! is an action-packed picture book that introduces a magical intrepid explorer grandfather — the eponymous Grandude — and his four grandchildren - he calls them Chillers . Join them as they ride flying fish, dodge stampedes, and escape avalanches. All brought to life with funny, colourful illustrations from talented artist and rising star, Kathryn Durst.

Paul said:"It’s about a character called Grandude who represents grandfathers everywhere. He has four grandchildren and he calls them “Chillers”. They love him and they go on adventures with him and he’s kind of magical, so you’ll see that in the book. I wanted to write it for grandparents everywhere – and the kids – so it gives you something to read to the grandkids at bed time."
