When you read such news, then you gain confidence that you have chosen the right music!
I am referring to the series of illustrated children’s books “Akashic Books’ LyricPop“.
The lyrics were written by Twisted Sister in the song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” which was illustrated by Margaret McCartney.
And you might say… so what?
It turned out that the lyrics were chosen by McCartney in order to show the first “rebellious” act performed by a person, especially a small child!
The illustrated book follows the story of three young children who defy their parents when it has to do with their lunch, bath, or sleep!
As Margaret McCartney characteristically states:
“When Akashic Books asked me to illustrate the book, I jumped at the chance. I really liked illustrating the very beginning of the book:
“We’re not gonna take it / No, we ain’t gonna take it / We’re not gonna take it / anymore!”
Refusing food is a baby’s first rebellious act.”
The book is currently available in the UK and we hope to see it around the world soon!
