LONDON British author J.K. Rowling's new children's book The Christmas Pig, her first children's novel since Harry Potter, was published Tuesday.

The book, illustrated by Jim Field, is the story of a little boy called Jack, and his beloved toy Dur Pig, and the toy Christmas Pig that replaces Dur

Pig when he's lost on Christmas Eve.

Together, Jack and the Christmas Pig embark on a magical journey to seek something lost, and to save the best friend Jack has ever known.

The book is published by Hachette Children's Group in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and India, in the United States and Canada by Scholastic, and in thirty-five translated languages by other publishers.

The audiobook is also available in English, German, French, Italian, Latin American Spanish, Castilian Spanish, and Japanese.
