From Amazon.ca --

Amazon.ca today announced its best-selling books of 2016, along with its best-selling Kids & Teens books — just in time for the holiday season. Taking the number one spot on both lists is the two-part West End stage play and newest Wizarding World story in nearly a decade, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two (Special Rehearsal Edition Script), written by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany. The runner-up on the overall top 20 list is the memoir When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. Diary of a Wimpy Kid # 11: Double Down by Jeff Kinney is second on the list of best-selling Kids & Teens books.
