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 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.
Christian Lochstoer cowrote the lyrics of "The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)" with Ylvis. He is managing editor of Tonight with Ylvis and has been working with the duo since 2007. Svein Nyhus is a Norwegian author and illustrator of children's books. He lives in Tonsberg, Norway. Visit his website at SveinNyhus.Blogspot.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.-- "Booklist"
