Boursnell said: "We’re thrilled to be helping spread the mythical message with this hilarious, heart-warming and visually stunning book. Rhett & Link have a huge and very devoted global fanbase, and we’re really excited to be working with the team at Crown and with our international Hachette colleagues to bring Rhett & Link’s Book of Mythicality to readers around the world."
