M Is for Metal, an irreverent kids’ book that’s not just for kids. Imagine Dr. Seuss crossed with Spinal Tap and The Simpsons and you’re in the ballpark. Appealing to children’s sense of the absurd, plus tickling grown-ups’ funny
bones with in-jokes about rock stars and their foibles. From Acca Dacca to Led Zep, via Gene’s tongue, The Stones’ refusal to die and Ozzy’s problems with dog poop, M Is for Metal! is the funniest, silliest and definitely the loudest A-Z you’ll read this year.
