Beorn (bsceadugenga) | 227 comments First published date was 2003 not 2002.
This edition was published in 2007.
An additional role needs adding for Christine Feddersen-Manfredi who was translator.
Page count was 426.

Susie (dragonsusie) | 2472 comments This edition updated - took published date from Amazon, but used your pagecount (not listed on WorldCat). Was able to confirm translator via WorldCat.

It appears that even though the translated version in English was originally published in 2003, the original book was published in 2002, as were some other translations, so the original publication date stands.

Beorn (bsceadugenga) | 227 comments That's fair enough. I was purely going on what the publishing info said on the inside.

As for the page count, the story ends on page 424 but there is a page of acknowledgement on what is (an un-numbered) page 426, so that's probably where I've screwed up on that. 424 is the last numbered page, as the acknowledgements page isn't numbered.

Thanks for ironing out the wrinkles anyway!

Susie (dragonsusie) | 2472 comments That's actually the correct way of counting - thanks for confirming!
"The number of pages in a book is meant to include all content except for advertisements and preview chapters for other books. Included end material may include acknowledgments, afterwords, appendices, glossaries, indexes, notes, and suggested discussion questions."
