The book behind the phenomenal YouTube sensation. 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.

Ylvis is made up of brothers Bard and Vegard Ylvisaker. Besides being talented musicians and pretty good dancers, the brothers have worked as comedians and talk-show hosts in Norway for many years. Svein Nyhus is a Norwegian author and illustrator of children's books. He lives in Tonsberg, Norway. His previous books include 'Why Kings and Queens Don't Wear Crowns' by Princess Martha Louise of Norway.From Booklist:
As media tie-ins go, this is a no-brainer. Even without the power of the viral video to back it up, 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 (“Jacha-chacha-chacha-chow! / Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!”) Meanwhile, the concept of the fox’s sounds as a mystery to be unlocked provides just enough of a element of plot. The illustrations, however, attempting to capture the frenetic surrealism of the video, might be harder for a child to embrace. Nyhus’ digitally rendered pictures fall somewhere between the Fauves and the Cubists, with a fiery red fox who is on one page defined by fluid, emotive expressions and on another by sharp angles. The other animals are similarly depicted, sometimes overwhelmingly so. Whether this book will be able to maintain its appeal beyond the life span of the video remains to be seen, but for now, kids will want to catch that mysterious fox. Preschool-Grade 3. --Kara Dean
