About the Author
The brothers Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker, better known as Ylvis, have gained a unique position in the Norwegian entertainment industry. They are musically gifted and have worked as comedy artists and talk show hosts in Norway for many years. The two young men began their career in 2000 with the show Ylvis - en kabaret ("Ylvis - A Cabaret"), critics handed out glowing reviews. The same happened when the brothers completed their second performance, Ylvis - en konsert ("Ylvis - A Concert"). They continue to put on concerts. The song "What Does the Fox Say?" was made for a TV show and was supposed to entertain a few Norwegians for three minutes - and that's all. It garnered over 200 million YouTube views. It was adapted to print and published by Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers and published in December 2013. It made the New York Times Bestseller list the same month.
Christian Løchstøer co-wrote 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 Nhyus is a Norwegian illustrator and writer of children's books. He often works with his twin brother Egil. Svein illustrated New York Times Bestseller What Does the Fox Say?
"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."
