“Exit light / Enter night / Take my hand / We’re off to never-never land”

If you’re looking for a different bedtime story book for your kids, Metallica might have something for you.

The heavy metal heavy-weights announced last week that they are releasing “The ABCs of Metallica” in November (just in time to land on Christmas lists.)

The book tells the story of the band with each letter of the alphabet highlighting a moment along the band’s career since its start in 1981, as well as fun facts about the bandmates, according to the announcement.

It’s co-authored by Howie Abrams with illustrations by Michael “Kaves” McLeer.

A portion of the sale of the book will go to All Within My Hands Foundation, a group started by the band to support workforce education and fight hunger.

The book is available for pre-order on the band’s site:

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
