J.K. Rowling has a new book coming this fall, a holiday children's story with all new characters.

Scholastic announced Tuesday that ``The Christmas Pig,'' the story of a boy named Jack and a beloved toy (Dur Pig) which goes missing, will be released worldwide Oct. 12."But Christmas Eve is a night for miracles and lost causes, a night when all things can come to life ... even toys,'' according to Scholastic." And Jack's newest toy - the Christmas Pig (DP's replacement) - has a daring plan: Together they'll embark on a magical journey to seek something lost, and to save the best friend Jack has ever known.''

Rowling is best known for her ``Harry Potter'' fantasy series, but also has published detective novels under the penname J.K. Galbraith and such children's works as ``The Ickabog.'' Her new book will be illustrated by Jim Field.
