Who or what is Pond Direction and why are they croaking the hits of One Direction (1D)? Turns out, the British boy-band has been turned into a group of frogs for a children’s book. Confused? Read on for more details. Read on for more details.
Each member of One Direction maybe prince charming to their millions of admiring followers, but in the new children’s book “The Curious Case of Fi Rex,” they are Pond Direction- a group of frogs. Well, musical frogs at any rate, known for such hits like “That’s What Makes Your Croak so Full.” They are part of the famous “Frog Chorus,” with Sir Paul Mccartney from his 1984 hit, “We All Stand Together,” the Mirror reported.
“Fi-Rex,” the story of Fiona Rex, a half-girl and half-dinosaur, is being penned by eight British celebrities including Sir Paul McCartney, Kylie Minogue and celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. One Direction is also part of the authors, as is Olympic diver Tom Daley and soccer player Wayne Rooney. But there is a twist, each celebrity was only given the last line of the previous page to work with.
“I was told who the main character was and I was shown the last sentence of Wayne and Coleen Rooney’s part of the story, and I had to carry it on in my style,” said Denise Van Outen, English actor and co-author of “Fi-Rex.”
According to the Mirror, The book is for the benefit of BBC’s Children in Need charity, who have been active for over twenty-five years in raising money for disabled children and young people in the UK.
We, for our part, are just glad for the Directioners who have their idols back to being adorable human selves after this brief amphibious interlude. After all, they will require all the charm that they can get with their new album “Made In the A.M.” releasing this week simultaneously with Justin Bieber.
The Curious Tale of Fi-Rex is available to buy in hardback (£12.99) and paperback (£7.99) from WHSmith and Tesco.
