I don't want a lot for Christmas...just a copy of Mariah Carey's new picture book!

The adorable book—which features the complete lyrics of Carey's hit song "All I Want For Christmas is You"—tells the story of a little girl whose only holiday wish is for a new puppy.

"When I wrote All I Want For Christmas Is You it was my dream for it to become a classic Christmas song," Carey told People. "I am so proud of the song's impact...I am thrilled to be able to bring the story of the song to new generations of families with the picture book."

Like her own kids, for example. The singer posted an adorable pic of her 4-year-old twins with Nick Cannon, Monroe and Morrocan, checking out the tale of a young girl—beautifully illustrated by Colleen Madden—who is so enamored with the thought of getting a puppy for Christmas that she spends all her free time baking puppy cookies, building puppy snowmen, and reading books about puppies.

"It's here!" Mariah wrote in her Instagram caption. "Be sure to pick up my new book 'All I Want for Chistmas is You' and create some special moments this Christmas!"

Aw. Could these two be any cuter? And is it just us, or does the girl on the cover look exactly like Mariah?

The song "All I Want for Christmas Is You" was released in 1994 and quickly sold more than 14 million copies. We think the book may be posied for the same fate. You can purchase your own copy here.
