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.

The promo has racked up 213 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. 10.
