Kay (kayvreeland) | 48 comments Help, for Goodreads Author Kizzie Jones, three new additions added to her books all need editing--book covers missing, correct French title, bilingual blurb order,correct accents in blurb, Illustrator's name, edition type after title.
Also, the new Kindle edition needs (Kindle edition) in title line like all the other books.
I have a list of the corrections needed.
Can I find a librarian to help, please?
Kay Vreeland, book manager for Kizzie Jones

You are more likely to get assistance if you post a link to each book, and specify what needs correcting. One book to a post is recommended, but they can all be in this thread.

Kay (kayvreeland) | 48 comments Please correct the following:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... (Hardcover)

Book cover needs to be added.

The illustrator’s name needs to be added to both editions: Scott Ward (Illustrations):
by Kizzie Jones (Goodreads Author), Scott Ward (Illustrations)

The blurb needs to be corrected with French accents correctly added and the French blurb above the English. See below.

Goldie le teckel est curieuse au sujet du pélican. Ils semblent se ressembler, mais ils sont très différents. Vont-ils s'aimer? Dans cette livre, Kizzie Jones nous montre que la vraie amitié s'agit non seulement de regarder plus loin que les différences entre les uns et les autres … il s'agit de découvrir et de célébrer ces différences.
Goldie the dachshund is curious about the pelican. They seem to look alike, but they are very different. Will they like each other? In this book, Kizzie Jones shows us that true friendship is not just about looking past each other's differences ... it's about discovering and celebrating those differences.

This French bilingual edition needs to be combined into All Editions.
Thank you!

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments #3-5 done
Format does not belong in the title field, it is displayed on the 'all editions' page if there is no series information available for the edition.
All formats are set correctly.
#6-8 seem to be the same as #3-5 but please let me know if I missed anything

Kay (kayvreeland) | 48 comments Oh thank you, Olivia, that was quick and all seems OK. But as requested, we would love this Kindle edition to stand out after the series name as the other books’ editions
Tall Tale about a Dachshund and a Pelican: How a Friendship Came to Be (Tall Tales Book 2)

we'd like to see: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
A Tall Tale about a Dachshund and a Pelican: How a Friendship Came to Be (Tall Tales Book 2) (Kindle)

Thanks again!

The Kindle Edition showing up is automated, and not something librarians have any control over. In this case, it's not happening because there is another parenthetical.

Although it's not clear to me if it really qualifies as a series by Goodreads standards. Do the two books have characters in common?


message 12: by Kay (new)

Kay (kayvreeland) | 48 comments All the books under this title, A Tall Tale about a Dachshund and a Pelican: How a Friendship Came to Be, are in the Tall Tales Series, and #1 and #2 are on Goodreads. #3 is coming next year.
All the editions of Tall Tales 2 are the same text, some with bilingual translations.

As for #1 and #2, yes, characters in common--the little girl heroine is the same and there is the same dachshund in both.

I'm frustrated that librarians have no control over this for our book, since I see other books with the (Kindle) at the end of the title. Readers will have to work hard to know there is an ebook for #2 as well as #1. But, I know Goodreads has its rules and its automation.

Thanks for your work, and for explaining!
