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.
"As media tie-ins go, this is a no-brainer...the premise of the book is child friendly, incorporating actual animal calls (“Dog goes woof. / Cat goes meow./ Bird goes tweet / and Mouse goes squeak.”), as well as a variety of silly noises, which will go down as a treat during storytime."
