AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - He's known for coloring outside the lines in the staid Senate. Now children of all ages can color in U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.

Just in time for the holidays, a St. Louis publisher is offering a coloring book featuring the Texas tea party darling.

Really Big Coloring Books Inc. said Thursday that the book's in its third printing in six days. The first run of around 10,000 sold out in barely 24 hours, and the second went nearly as fast.

Cruz didn't cooperate in the publishing of the book.

It shows the ardent supporter of the Second Amendment hunting, and features his 21-hour speech on the Senate floor opposing the White House-backed health care law.

The same publisher also produced a popular 2008 coloring book on President Barack Obama's inauguration.
