Chelsea Clinton is being sued for copyright infringement for her bestselling book, "She Persisted," the New York Post reported.

Christopher Janes Kimberley said in May 2013 he sent a pitch for his illustrated kids book, "A Heart is the Part That Makes Boys and Girls Smart," to Jennifer Loja, the president of Penguin Young Readers U.S. Loja, Kimberley's lawsuit claims, handed off the idea to Clinton. Kimberley is also suing Random Penguin House and is seeking up to $150,000 in damages and any profits from the book.

Clinton's book has been on The New York Times' bestselling children's picture book list for five weeks. Kimberley said his book contains 15 quotes and stories from historical figures such as Nellie Bly, Harriet Tubman, and Helen Keller. Clinton's book features quotes and stories from those women and 10 others.

Kimberley sent a cease and desist letter to Clinton and the publisher in April before the book was published.
