Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles of Peking Duk have authored a children’s book.
The book ‘DJ Duks’ is being published in association with Peking Duk publisher BMG.
“DJ Duks is a cautionary tale of 2 little ducks named Adam and Roobs with big dreams of fame, fortune and #millionfollowerstatus on Quakker. Through the twists and turns of the music industry, the DJ DUKS get to hang out with celebrities (some with millions of followers), own fancy cars and live in a mansion but they soon notice the emptiness of these people around them and the world of social media. Adam and Roobs have to figure out a way to reconnect with the friends and the music they’ve left back at home in the Ducklands” says co-author Reuben Styles.
“This is a very special project for us, we are proud of DJ Duks and excited to see how kids of all ages react to it. It’s been a pleasure working with the team at BMG and the super talented illustrator Alex Lehours on bringing this vision to life” says co-author Adam Hyde.
Heath Johns of BMG said, “Adam and Reuben are two of the most innovative and exploratory musicians I’ve ever worked with and it was an absolute joy for our team to collaborate with them on this truly unique children’s book. As a father of two music obsessed daughters, I’ve seen them fall in love with the book and the beautifully illustrated characters by acclaimed Sydney street artist Alex Lehours. DJ Duks is definitely a banger!”
Children’s books written my musicians include Ringo Starr’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’, Paul McCartney’s ‘High In The Clouds’, Keith Richards ‘Gus & Me’, ‘Outlaw Pete’ by Bruce Springsteen and ‘The English Roses’ by Madonna.
Pekin Duk’s ‘DJ Duks’ will be available for delivery by mid-December.
