Clinton’s book, published May 30, targets readers ages four to eight, according to its description.
Kimberley’s book contains 15 quotes and stories from historical figures such as Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman and Nellie Bly in its ‘Quotable Questionnaire’ section. Clinton’s book features 13 stories and quotes including those three women.
Kimberley said he sent off his book proposal via Facebook to Penguin Random House but he never heard back.
He accuses the president of Penguin Young Readers US, Jennifer Loja, of receiving the submission, reading it, taking his idea and giving it to Clinton.
Kimberley alleges Clinton’s book willfully infringed upon his work by including quotes and stories from the women in featured in his.
