Los Angeles - Mariah Carey is releasing a festive children's book.

The 46-year-old singer - who has four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with estranged husband Nick Cannon - feels "thrilled and proud" to be releasing a picture story based on her 1994 hit single All I Want For Christmas Is You.

She told People magazine: "When I wrote All I Want For Christmas Is You it was my dream for it to become a classic Christmas song.

"I am so proud of the song's impact as it continues to create memories for fans each year.

"I am thrilled to be able to bring the story of the song to new generations of families with the picture book."

The book features the complete lyrics of the single and tells the story of a little girl whose festive wish is for a new puppy.

The news comes a few weeks after it was announced the Hero singer will make her directorial debut on the Hallmark Channel's Mariah Carey's Christmas Project.

The festive feature - which Mariah will also star in - will start shooting in October and will air in December as part of the network's Countdown to Christmas programming.
