Editorial Reviews

Booklist
"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."

    I think this is extremely well done. They have captured the essence of the words from the video and put it on paper. I feel that you must
    watch the video to fully appreciate the book. Do not take it to seriously and definitely have fun with it. Bravo. Well done.

    Grammy's and grand babies all will love this book!   My 3 sweetie's (20 months, 3 and 4) and i all have a happy fun time dancing when we play Ylvis's youtube video - the book is equally entertaining.  It's not just a sing along book but a dance along book as well.  Thank you Ylvis!  With some editing Stonehenge would be a fun learning book for children as well!

    Where did the music go?

    Great visually, but seriously disappointed that my Son didn't get the music and vocals that made it something the kids all love.

    A major disappointment due to the artwork in the book Expected much better...thought it would have beautiful pictures of the animals. These are ugly caricatures!

    Highly recommended

    My great niece and great nephew, ages 7 and 9, were singing the very popular song continuously and I thought it would be fun for them to have all the words so that they could really have fun. The children loved it; the book was a big hit at Christmas.

    If you love the video, you'll love the book!!!

    Beautiful, quirky illustrations, perfectly matching the song. My 13 year old asked for this for Christmas and he had a blast showing the video and explaining the phenomena that is Ylvis to his grandparents.

    Great Song! Great Book!

    Bought this book for my daughter because she loves to listen to the song. This book was just as big of a hit and is fun for us to sing and read to together! The illustrations are also perfectly unique.

    Fun

    Purchased copies for my college kids and they really enjoyed it as they already new the song. They did mention that is was a shame that a DVD of the video was not included.
