Former Beatle Paul McCartney is now a children's book author
Not only he is a singer and a knight, but also a writer. At least from now on. Well, needless to say that this former Beatle really is a multitalented person. Paul McCartney is now a children's book author.
The singer has on Thursday entertained a young group of elementary school students, reading them an excerpt from his new book "High in the Clouds." It is about an industrious squirrel named Wirral, whose mother is crushed to death by a tree knocked down by nature-hating developers. From there, he sets off for the mythic animal-loving land of Animalia.
Surprisingly, the reading got positive responses from the children who then raised questions which McCartney, for sure, willingly answered. In related news, McCartney also will provide the first-ever live wake-up call, two songs, to the crew of the International Space Station from his concert in Anaheim, Calif.
