Holiday queen Mariah Carey is releasing a small treat for fans: a children’s book about a Christmas princess.
As Carey explained on Instagram, “The Christmas Princess is a fairytale for holiday lovers of all ages! Little Mariah represents my inner child believing in her own vision, she represents all children, 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.”
The new book was co-written by Michaela Angela Davis, who also worked with the diva on her 2020 memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey. Original illustrations were created by Fuuji Takashi, and the book is expected to be released on October 25, 2022.
As for the plot of the book, the official synopsis on Macmillan Publishers’ website reads: "Little Mariah doesn’t have much and doesn’t want a lot, but there is just one thing she longs for: a peaceful and joyous holiday season. Feeling outcast and alone, Little Mariah sets off on a wintry, wondrous journey, ultimately discovering the healing power of her voice to spread the spirit of Christmas at home and all around the world."
Speaking of Christmas, Carey just wrapped up another successful holiday season, with her No. #1 90s hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” topping the Billboard Hot 100 for the third year in a row and surpassing one billion streams on Spotify. She also premiered her second holiday music extravaganza with Apple TV+, Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues.
