A spokesman for the publisher did not respond to inquiries as to whether Chelsea Clinton was approached to write the book about her mother.

Nikki Grimes, who won the 2006 NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children, wrote Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope.

And Kathleen Krull, who has written a number of books about women, wrote Hillary Rodham Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight.

Aladdin Books, an imprint with Simon & Schuster, is publishing the three tomes and will donate a portion of the proceeds from McCain’s book to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. The fund aids military personnel who suffered traumatic brain injuries while in service. There’s no word on whether Meghan McCain will make a similar donation.
