Wacky comedy duo Ylvis have signed a deal to turn their unlikely hit "The Fox (What Does The Fox Say)" into a children's book.


The Norwegian brothers, Vegard and Bard Ylvisaker, originally recorded the tune and made an accompanying video to prank TV bosses, but the track has become a chart-topping sensation and the promo has racked up 215 million YouTube hits - and now the siblings are set to become authors thanks to the catchy hit.


Officials at U.S. publishing house Simon & Schuster signed the brothers to adapt their catchy lyrics into a book, titled What Does the Fox Say? Ylvis' first book will hit shelves on Dec. 13.
