This fall, the singer is set to make her children's book debut with All I Want for Christmas Is You, a picture book inspired by Carey's hit song, PEOPLE can reveal exclusively.
"When I wrote All I Want For Christmas Is You it was my dream for it to become a classic Christmas song," Carey tell PEOPLE in a statement. "I am so proud of the song's impact as it continues to create memories for fans each year."
She adds: "I am thrilled to be able to bring the story of the song to new generations of families with the picture book."
The book, which features the complete lyrics of Carey's chart-topping hit, tells the story of a little girl whose greatest holiday wish is for a new puppy.
The song "All I Want for Christmas Is You" was released in 1994 and quickly became a family favorite, selling over 14 million copies.
Carey previously announced in late July that she will direct a feel-good holiday movie set to be released as part of Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas. The mother of two will also costar in the festive film.
All I Want for Christmas Is You hits shelves Nov. 10.
