The book behind the phenomenal Youtube sensation 'What Does the Fox Say?'
Dog goes woof.
Cat goes meow.
Bird goes tweet,
and mouse goes squeak... But what does the fox say?
Ylvis started working with the illustrator for this book before they had even uploaded the video to Youtube as they felt it had the potential to become an interesting book as well. As they say "The level of detail in Svein's drawings make the book fun to read over and over. Hopefully kids will enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed making it."
Ylvis is made up of brothers Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker. Besides being talented musicians and pretty good dancers, the brothers have worked as comedians an talk-show hosts in Norway for many years.

Ylvis is made up of brothers Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker. Besides being talented musicians and pretty good dancers, the brothers have worked as comedians and talk-show hosts in their home country of Norway for many years. Their music video “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” appeared on YouTube on September 3, 2013. Within a few months, it had become a global phenomenon, with more than 200 million views. Now, the brothers have taken their fun lyrics and have paired them with Svein Nyhus’s playful illustrations for a whole new take on the fox’s unique way of speaking. What Does the Fox Say? is Ylvis’s first picture book. Learn more at Ylvis.com.
