Paul McCartney Has a Furry Tale

According to, Paul McCartney is going to write a book for children:

Sir Paul McCartney is to release his first children's book later this year following a publishing deal with Penguin Books, soundgenerator can report. The former Beatle, who launches into a huge North American tour later in September, has spent the last few years working on the picture book, titled 'High In the Clouds: An Urban Furry Tale'.

"Having worked on this story and the characters for many years, it's very exciting for me to see things come to fruition in what I think will be a remarkable book," said Paul McCartney in a statement.

...The book will initially be released across the US on October 4, 2005, with an initial print run of 500,000 copies. "This is going to be a major best-seller for us, said Doug Whiteman, the President of Penguin Young Readers Group. "I know that a whole new generation of readers will become fans of Paul."
And we all know how desperate he is for fans. But it is a good idea to try to reach a new generation of fans through books because kids really hate the Beatles. They just despise that music instantly, especially the Paul songs. Now, "Give My Regards to Broad Street" is another story...
