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!

This is a very cool book based on the hilarious viral video. The illustrations are amazing, and the text follows the song exactly. Great fun for kids and adults!

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.

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.

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.

I purchased 4 of these books for holiday gifts, all 3 of my teen age granddaughters go one, and 1 for me... LOVE the song and the book is truly amazing. Fun for all ages. We had everyone at a recent wedding singing the song and animating all the animals...

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.

My niece loves the song and loved that she was able to have a book to go along with it . Illustrations are wonderful

It the same as the music video

This book lets you know what the song words are, but I don't like the "modernistic" style of the pictures. I bought this to share with my 2-year-old grandsons, and I guess it will help them identify animals even when they look weird, but personally, I would have preferred other pictures.
