Available for pre-order now, its description reads:
“Including rhymes and illustrations, The ABCs of Metallica looks back at the history of the band from, duh, A to Z! Each letter of the alphabet highlights a moment along the band’s journey from Garage Days to Master of Puppets to fun facts about the guys. The book is co-authored by Howie Abrams (The Merciless Book of Metal Lists, Hip-Hop Alphabet), with illustrations by Michael “Kaves” McLeer, who participated in Metallica’s Obey Your Master exhibit in 2012.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation, which is dedicated to creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services. For more information, please visit allwithinmyhands.org.”
Those of us at Kerrang! with kids are already scrambling to get our hands on one. And those who don't yet have children are considering the addition...just to read them a book penned by Metallica.
