Mariah Carey’s twins, Moroccan and Monroe aka Roc and Roe are the inspiration behind a new children’s holiday book titled, Roc and Roe’s Twelve Days of Christmas.

According to THR, Carey and husband, Nick Cannon are teaming up with Scholastic to publish the new book, which is said to be a spin on the classic Christmas carol, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” The couple have even enlisted New York Times best-selling artist AG Ford to do all of the illustrations.

This is Mariah and Nick’s first book and the two couldn’t be more proud. “We are so excited to work with the Scholastic team on our Roc and Roe picture book and we can’t wait until this holiday season,”  said the two in a statement.

“It’s been such a fun and collaborative process and we are thrilled to be working with Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey on this exciting project. Roc and Roe’s Twelve Days of Christmas is the perfect book to read with your little ones—an adorable spin on a classic tale, sprinkled with humor and heart,” said Ken Geist, vp and editorial director for Scholastic Press Picture Books.

Speaking of holidays…Mariah still holds the title of ‘best-selling holiday digital single’ for “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” which was released 20 years ago this year.

Congrats to the happy couple and looking forward to seeing the book when it debuts this fall.
