NEW YORK — Are you there, Santa? Amanda Peet is calling.

Random House Children’s Books announced Tuesday that it will release in fall 2015 “Dear Santa, Love Rachel Rosenstein,” a picture book that the actress-playwright collaborated on with friend Andrea Troyer.

The story revolves around a young Jewish girl who wonders why Santa doesn’t visit her house. According to a statement from Peet, she was inspired by her two children, who asked why the family didn’t have a Christmas tree or holiday lights. Peet says she wanted to write about the feeling of being “left out.”
