TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) Toronto-based illustrator Kathryn Durst and Paul McCartney have teamed up to bring McCartney’s tale for grandchildren to the masses.

McCartney revealed the cover of his children’s book, “Hey Grandude!” featuring Durst’s illustrations on social media yesterday.

Durst told the CBC that some authors take a hands-off approach to the visual side of storytelling but that she and McCartney spoke many times over the phone to discuss his ideas for illustrations. According to Durst, “grandude” is a nickname given to McCartney by one of his eight grandchildren. She said McCartney had direct input into the “retired hippie-ish” design of the title character.

The book will be published by Random House in September.
