Kelly Clarkson is going back to the inkwell.
The pop singer announced Wednesday that her second children’s book, River Rose and the Magical Christmas, will be published by HarperCollins in the fall.
Due Oct. 24, the picture book finds River Rose (a character inspired by Clarkson’s young daughter) being swept up in an adventure to the North Pole. Magical Christmas is illustrated by Lucy Fleming and marks Clarkson’s follow-up to last year’s River Rose and the Magical Lullaby, which became a best-seller.
Clarkson broke the news with a humorous video posted to social media, above, adding she’ll be releasing an original Christmas song to go with the book.
