"The Fox" is definitely one of the most ridiculously fun hits of the year, and now Ylvis , the Norwegian comedy duo behind the viral song, have landed a deal to write a children's book based on it.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the book, called What Does the Fox Say? , will arrive in stores December 10.  The book presumably will incorporate lyrics from the song, such as "Gering-ding-ding-ding-dineringeding!" and "Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!"

The publication reports that in a statement, an executive at Simon & Schuster, which is publishing the book, says, "I cannot tell you how many times I've watched Ylvis' hilarious, mesmerizing, unforgettable 'The Fox.' The lyrics and playfulness of the song lend themselves perfectly to the picture book format."

"The Fox" was recently featured on ABC's Dancing with the Stars, as well as in an Saturday Night Live skit starring Kerry Washington . The video has been viewed more than 215 million times on YouTube.
