Metallica to publish children’s book about the band
Metallica has announced plans to publish a children’s book called The ABCs Of Metallica on November 26th through Permuted Press.
Using rhymes and illustrations, the book has been co-authored by the band and Howie Abrams, with artwork by Michael “Kaves” McLeer.
The book is described as a look back at “the remarkable history of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most celebrated groups,” adding, “Each letter of the alphabet highlights a significant moment along the band’s journey, from their humble garage days, to their numerous classic albums such as …And Justice For All and Master Of Puppets, to biographical information on the band members themselves.”
A portion of the proceeds from the book 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.
