'What Does the Fox Say?' children's book on the way


You’ve probably seen that YouTube video about what the fox says. Soon you’ll get to read about it.

Simon & Schuster’s Children’s Publishing has acquired a picture book based on the online sensation devised by the Norwegian comedy team Ylvis. The publisher announced Monday that the upcoming release, What Does the Fox Say?, will come out Dec. 10.

Ylvis, alias for brothers Vegard and Bard Ylvisaker, have scored more than 200 million YouTube hits since September of them prancing in fox suits singing: “Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!”

'Underwater Dogs': See 10 cute/ferocious photos!


When you throw a tennis ball into the swimming pool for your dog to fetch, you never get to see what your dog is up to below the surface. In Underwater Dogs (out today), a book of 89 portraits of diving canines, photographer Seth Casteel has captured the “chaotic ballet of bared teeth and bubbles, paddling paws, fur and ears billowing in the currents.”

Not all of these photos are cute. Some of the submerged models are hardly recognizable as dogs — they look like predatory sea monsters, and some are almost dinosaur-like. But the gorgeous, energetic snapshots are special in that they capture our pets in a primal state we rarely get to see.

Take a peek at ten water-loving breeds from Underwater Dogs!
