Metallica to publish children’s book, The ABCs of Metallica

[From Ben Beaumont-Thomas at The Guardian]

Illustrated book tells the history of the metal band, and will benefit their charity All Within My Hands

Metallica, the metal band known for their toxic rivalries, substance misuse and songs entitled Leper Messiah, Harvester of Sorrow and My Friend of Misery, have entered the world of children’s publishing.

The illustrated book The ABCs of Metallica will be published on 26 November, to benefit the band’s charity foundation All Within My Hands. The band wrote it in collaboration with author Howie Abrams, and it is illustrated by Michael “Kaves” McLeer.

The band described the book on their website, saying: “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 our journey from Garage Days to Master of Puppets to fun facts about us.”
