Kiki and Jax are two friends who couldn’t be more different. Kiki likes to collect things and Jax likes to sort. When the collections start to pile up, the two friends have to try to make room for what really brings them joy: each other.

“I’m pleased to share this timeless story about friendship, and I hope that the characters of Kiki and Jax inspire children and families to tidy and embrace joy!” Kondo said in a statement.

The book is co-written and illustrated by Geisel Honor-winner Salina Yoon. The book will hit stores on  Nov. 5, 2019. You can pre-order a copy now on Amazon for $14.
