Picture book coming from Carey and Cannon

NEW YORK (AP) — Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are working on a children's book.

Scholastic announced Thursday that it has acquired the couple's "Roc and Roe's Twelve Days of Christmas," a picture story scheduled for release this fall. Illustrated by A.G. Ford, the book is a holiday tale featuring twins Moroccan and Monroe, to whom Carey gave birth in 2011.

Scholastic is billing the book as an "adorable" take on a famous Christmas carol.
