December 6, 2018

If you are looking for a Christmas present for a kid that doesn't involved so many complicated toys and gadgets, then we may just have found the perfect stocking stuffer for you!

A mixture of Dr. Seuss and Ozzy Osbourne, Don't Fear The Dark is children's book meant for the little rockers in your family. According to author Lav Nandlall, Don't Fear The Dark will be an eleven-volume series that illustrates the history of rock and metal from the 1960's to present day. “The eleven books aim to educate young headbangers about a music scene that is often overlooked in society as well as inform the ‘littles’ that there’s nothing to fear about metal music." 

“There aren’t many commercial books on the topic of metal music nor are there any books for younger audiences, so this is a first of its kind. It opens discussions about musical inspiration, artistic careers, style statements, adventure, and the macabre," says Nandlall. “People who are curious and intrigued by a world of music will find that there’s something in there for them.”

Written by Nandall, Don't Fear The Dark is illustrated by South African artist Kaylee McHugh and designed by Jeanine Breuer.
