It's time to start 'em young, because AC/DC have inspired a new children's alphabet book, using the band and their music to teach kids their ABCs. 

The new book is being released by Love Police - an Australia merch company, touring agency and record label - aimed at pre-schoolers. Designed and produced by Paul McNeil, the alphabet will be depicted with bright imagery and humour inspired by the hard rockers and their music.

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

"A is for Angus [Young], who thinks it’s good luck, to wear a school uniform, and walk like a duck.”

And another says: "C is for Cliff [Williams], who plays on the bass, likes only 4 notes and has a nice face.”

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

Another reads, "J is for jail, with no liberty, break the hell out, you've got to be free."

"J is for Jail"

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

He added: "Yeah, it’s a kids book, but any AC/DC or music fan will find something on every page.

“[McNeil] has done a sweet and rockin’ job. We are looking forward to educating another generation of rock and rollers!”

Love Police has already released three music-themed alphabet books to date, starting with 2007's 'M Is For Metal', while 'Never Mind Your Ps and Qs: Here’s The Punk Alphabet' was released the following year.

And in 2009, the company dropped 'ABC and W: The Country And Western Alphabet Book'.

Music Feeds reports, that Angus Young personally approached Love Police's founder Brian Taranto about a book, after he read 'M is for Metal!" during lockdown. 

 "...To have had a connection to Angus for the real deal stuff makes it even more wild and special,” said Taranto.

'The AC/DC AB/CD High-Voltage Alphabet' is set to be released on November 11, and you can pre-order it here

He previously teased: "I’ve had some long nights and some great nights, bad days and a lot of good ones.

“Now I’ve gone and written a bloody book about it… 'The Lives of Brian' is coming this October.”
