This was one of four books I won in a giveaway. Each of the four books takes the lyrics of a well-known song and creates illustrations to go with them. Parents and children who know these songs might especially enjoy reading the lyrics and seeing what the artist visualized for a children's book. For more children's literature, middle grade literature, and YA literature reviews, feel free to visit my personal blog at The Miller Memo! ...more

We're Not Gonna Take It is part of the LyricPop series from Akashic Books. This volume combines the lyrics of the classic Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) song and drawings from Margaret McCartney. I came to this series unsure how I might respond, the songs/books I have read are from my youth and trying to imagine them as picture books was difficult. Much of each review of these books will be the same with the exception of the part specific to the book. So...

I was very pleasantly surprised. The story

I love the idea. It can be sang or read to children, and introduce them to classic music all the same.

I also liked how the illustrator took the song's meaning to a whole new level by giving it a story that younger children could relate to.

Weirdly at the end of the book it links to the songs of the other books in the series, but not the song of the book you just finished reading. A missed opportunity.
Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.

Adorable board book for littles who love rock & roll (or their parents...or grandparents!) Thank you Edelweiss for the DRC!

The Twisted Sister song made into a picture book. It's kind of cute, but I'm not sure it will have wide appeal. ...more
