Marie Kondo is taking her message of tidiness to a whole new generation, releasing a kid's book called Kiki & Jax.

Drawing inspiration from Kondo's much-discussed KonMari method of tidiness, the book tells the story of two best friends who, well, don't have a lot in common (Kiki’s a collector, Jax is a sorter).

Sharing news of the book release on social media, Kondo wrote: "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!"

The book is a collaboration between Kondo and award-winning children’s book author and illustrator Salina Yoon, known for her Penguin book series.

Written for kids aged three to seven, the 40-page book is available now to pre-order and set to hit shelves in November - just in time for Christmas.
