Twisted Sis­ter in­spires kids’ book

Calgary Herald - - MOVIES -

Twisted Sis­ter’s rock an­them We’re Not Gonna Take It has in­spired a new chil­dren’s picture book. Il­lus­trated by Mar­garet Mccart­ney and pub­lished by Akashic Books, We’re Not Gonna Take It fea­tures the song’s lyrics and en­cour­ages young chil­dren to be re­bel­lious. “I never imag­ined the song be­ing rel­a­tive to tod­dlers and in­fants and small chil­dren, but the re­al­iza­tion was that re­bel­lion is one of our first in­stincts,” Twisted Sis­ter front­man Dee Snider says. Adds Mccart­ney: “If you have spent any time with kids that age, you know that their favourite word to say and least favourite word to hear is ‘No!’ and that they are a real hand­ful as they learn how to as­sert their tiny selves.”
