“What Does the Fox Say?,” a viral YouTube video with 215 million views is set to become a children’s book in time for Christmas.

The song is about the musings of Norwegian comedy group Ylvis on just what sound, exactly, a fox makes (sometimes fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow, sometimes joff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff, etc).

The book, which will be printed by Simon & Schuster’s Children’s Publishing, is sure to be an educational gem for children and a hilarious inside joke for the millions of YouTubers who haven’t stopped singing the song since it went viral this September.

The book is scheduled for release on Dec. 10.
