Some of us may still be sweeping pine needles, but a new announcement will make us wonder why we have to wait so long for Christmas 2022: Mariah Carey is releasing a children’s book with a holiday theme!
As if her hit on the hit list “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was not enough to get us in the festive spirit, the announcement that she is releasing The Christmas Princess, coming out this fall (just in time for next year’s holiday season), will definitely.
This is not her first foray into children’s books. It’s not even her first foray into children’s Christmas books: in 2015 she wrote a book about a girl longing for a pet dog in the appropriate title, The only thing I want for Christmas is you. But for her upcoming project, the story is semi-autobiographical – it even has a young Mariah who “does not have much and does not want much”, but still struggles with loneliness.
“It was empowering to turn the turmoil of my childhood into a modern classic adventure full of wonder and boundless hope.”
“Little Mariah represents my inner child who believes in her own vision, she represents all children, especially those who feel like outsiders or ‘others’ who strive to believe in themselves,” the Grammy Award-winning artist said in a statement to People. “It was empowering to turn the turmoil of my childhood into a modern classic adventure full of wonder and boundless hope.”
She admitted that the book, illustrated by Fuuuji Takashi, is also about letting small fantasies run free.
“So many of us have drowned in ‘bleakocity’ over the last year and a half, why not create an enchanted land to flee to?” said Mariah.

The Christmas Princess ($ 11) is already available for pre-order on Amazon Kindle before it hits bookshelves on October 25th.
