Metallica have released a preview of their new children's book, featuring Kirk Hammett reading the chaper about him: 'K is for Kirk'. 

The book, titled 'The ABCs of Metallica' will feature rhymes and illustrations detailing the history of the band. It's been co-written by Howie Abrams with illustrations by Michael 'Kaves' McLeer, who took part in Metallica's Obey Your Master exhibition back in 2012.

"The ABCs Of Metallica looks back at the remarkable history of heavy metal’s most celebrated group," reads a statement on the book.

"Each letter of the alphabet highlights a significant moment along the band’s journey, from their humble garage days, to their numerous classic albums such as ...And Justice For All and Master Of Puppets, to biographical information on the band members themselves. The book is sure to entertain young readers as well as diehard fans of all ages."

The ABCs Of Metallica will be published later this year, with a portion of proceeds from sales benefiting Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation
