AC/DC sign off on children’s alphabet picture book

Rock legends AC/DC have signed off on a children’s picture book called The AC/DC AB/CD High-Voltage Alphabet.

The alphabet picture book is the fourth in a series of children’s picture books released by Australian music and lifestyle company, Love Police, headed up by Brian ‘BT’ Taranto. The series was first launched over 15 years ago with kids alphabet book M is for Metal, which was an unexpected smash hit. The release of Never Mind Your Ps & Qs Here’s the Punk Alphabet and The Country and Western Alphabet Book followed with continued success.

Iconic artist and designer, Paul ‘The Mayor’ McNeil, has injected his bold ideas and punk attitude into The AC/DC AB/CD High-Voltage Alphabet. The result is a fun and engaging alphabet picture book aimed at pre-schoolers, whilst also keeping the grown-ups entertained. Each colourful page includes a letter of the alphabet with a corresponding band member, theme or historical fact (or fiction) from one of the most successful and enduring rock n’roll bands of all time.

The inception of The AC/DC AB/CD High-Voltage Alphabet came about when co-founder, lead guitarist, songwriter and sole original member of AC/DC, Angus Young, discovered the M is for Metal children’s book while in Australia during the pandemic. He contacted BT at Love Police, and good fortune ended with Angus and BT swapping war stories of amp stacks, ringing ears and antics on the road. The Mayor said “Ask him if he wants me to create the ‘Highway to Spell’?” They did! So he did!

When asked about this project, BT shared his excitement. “What an honour it is to work on this book! To have had a connection to Angus for the real deal stuff makes it even more wild and special. Yeah, it’s a kids book, but any AC/DC or music fan will find something on every page. The Mayor has done a sweet and rockin’ job. We are looking forward to educating another generation of rock and rollers!”

The AC/DC AB/CD High-Voltage Alphabet is available now for pre-order from www.lovepolicebooks.com and in stores from November 11.
