According to The Independent, President of children’s publishing at Simon & Schuster, Jon Anderson, said in a statement, "I cannot tell you how many times I’v e watched Ylvis’ hilarious, mesmerizing, unforgettable "The Fox."
"The lyrics and playfulness of the song lend themselves perfectly to the picture book format."
