Ted Cruz coloring book breaks onto best-seller list
No. 1 in Amazon’s list of top-selling children’s coloring books? That would be the one about tea party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz, titled “Cruz to the Future: Comic Coloring Activity Book,” as of Friday morning rankings.
Amazon describes it as a “non-partisan, fact-driven view of how Texas Sen. Rafael Edward Ted Cruz became a U.S. senator and details, through his quotes and public information, his ideas for what he believes will help America grow. Cruz has openly identified with the Tea Party and garners support from the Republican Liberty Caucus and many independents, including Democrats.”
But to kids carting crayons, he’s just something to color — Mr. Cruz in hunting gear, or making his speech against Obamacare on the Senate floor, The Blaze reported.
This is publisher Really Big Coloring Books Inc.’s third printing of the book, which sold 10,000 copies within 24 hours in its first printing, The Blaze reported. And the publisher touts it as an ideal companion school text because it’s entirely fact-based, The Blaze reported.
Mr. Cruz wasn’t involved in the book’s creation or publishing.
