If you’re both a parent and a fan of AC/DC, you’ll be most excited to learn that a children’s book based on the rockers is coming.

That’s right – the band are set to be the subject of a new children’s book teaching them the alphabet, which is being released by an Australian merch company, touring agency and record label named Love Police.

The book, titled The AC/DC AB/CD High-Voltage Alphabet, was designed and produced by Paul McNeil, and is being released on November 11.

“A is for Angus [Young], who thinks it’s good luck, to wear a school uniform, and walk like a duck,” one entry from the book reads.

Another adds, “C is for Cliff [Williams], who plays on the bass, likes only 4 notes and has a nice face.”

In a statement, Love Police founder Brian Taranto described the project as an “honour”, with something for “any AC/DC or music fan”.

“Yeah, it’s a kids book, but any AC/DC or music fan will find something on every page,” he said.
