The author announced the exciting news on her personal Instagram account and shared a photo of the book with the caption, “Introducing Kiki & Jax my upcoming children’s picture book co-written and illustrated by @salinayoon. It’s a timeless story about friendship, and I hope that the characters of Kiki and Jax will inspire children and families to tidy and embrace joy!”
Kiki & Jax: The Life-Changing Magic of Friendship tells the story of two best friends: Kiki, a collector, and Jax, a sorter. When Kiki’s belongings start infiltrating their space, the pair is forced to make room for the most important element of joy: friendship. (Although the book won’t hit shelves until November 5, it’s currently available for preorder.)
Kondo originally gained popularity in 2011 when she published The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. She went on to release three additional books and even starred in the popular Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.
