Fatcat and Fishface are New Zealand musicians who write and record witty, highly original and wonderfully catchy songs for children. Often naughty, always funny, they have built up a strong following among parents and children who appreciate their unique and high quality music. The Wreck of the Diddley was originally a song, a devilishly dark pirate's tale, that winds up badly off Island Bay. Inspired by the success of an animated version of this song, Fatcat and Fishface enlisted acclaimed illustrator Stephen Templer to turn this song into a book, which he has done in his exuberant and marvellously colourful way. Accompanying the book is a DVD of the animated version of The Wreck of The Diddley, so that all readers, young and old, can enjoy this musical tale. This is a superb and original production, blending world-class illustration with the best in children's music.
