Ahmet Zappa seems to have a thing for monsters in his role as children’s book author. In his first kids’ book, 2006’s The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless, the son of legendary rocker Frank Zappa told the tale of brother and sister Minerva and Max McFearless and their battles with the monsters who come out at night. Now on April 2 comes the busy father/avant guarde rocker’s first picture book, Because I’m Your Dad, which is all about the loving one-of-a-kind relationship between an amazing monster dad and his monster son.
“I wrote this book for anyone who is a father, has a father, or hopes to someday be a
father,” says Zappa, who grew up with a learning disability and now writes books to help children discover the world of reading.
Take a look at the exclusive book trailer below to get a sense of this monster tale and hear Zappa rock out.
