    The Christmas Pig – illustrated by Jim Field – follows a little boy called Jack who has a special toy pig that he loses.

    An identical replacement appears, called Christmas Pig, which takes him on an adventure to find his original toy.

    The official book chart is compiled by market measurement firm Nielsen. This marks Miss Rowling’s 16th book to reach the number one spot.

    Her previous chart-toppers include her five-part crime series written as Robert Galbraith as well as her Harry Potter novels which have sold hundreds of millions of copies worldwide.

    It is also the author’s 85th week in the top spot overall since Nielsen records began in 1998.
