The book which is inspired by her childhood is described as a “fairytale for holiday lovers of all ages.” The kids’ book aims to be a representation of “all children” through its main character, “especially those who feel like outsiders or ‘others,’ striving to believe in themselves.
”“It was empowering to transform my childhood turmoil into a modern classic fairytale full of wonder and boundless hope,” elaborated the mother of two.
The Christmas Princess was illustrated by Fuuji Takashi and co-written with Michaela Angela Davis, who Carey worked with on her bestselling memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey.
According to Forbes, Carey earns more than $2.5 million each holiday season for her All I Want for Christmas song. With this first ever Christmas theme book, Carey should look to capitalize on more holiday merchandise.
The Christmas Princess is now available for pre-order and arrives on Nov. 1.
