Anne (shycat) | 67 comments So I'm holding my copy of The Dark is Rising (ISBN 0-689-71087-9) and the cover is similar to the one listed for this edition, but not quite right. The colors on the actual book are less saturated; it has a Newbery Honor award on it; the bird in the upper right isn't in front of the title the way it is on the Goodreads page. The Amazon page here has the right cover. Here is a link to that image:

Thank you!

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments There were no cover changes for the edition you linked and I could not find your cover on other editions not having ISBNs. Books are sometimes released with new covers but same ISBNs - in such cases we do not replace valid covers but create ACE instead.

I created alternate-cover edition here:

If you can confirm publisher, publication date, format, page count, etc from your copy we'll add them to the newly created edition.

Anne (shycat) | 67 comments Ah, okay! I didn't know that.

Publisher: Aladdin Paperbacks
Publication date: 1999 this edition, first published 1973
Format: paperback
Page count: 244

Is there other information that would be useful? Thanks!
