These books are flagged not to be combined as they are two different series. I believe the newer versions are just a repackaging by the author of the 1st and 5th books in the original series to a new series for just the two Banzai books. Therefore I believe they should be combined.

Sandi (sandimm) | 21 comments I've read the books (originals) and I'm 99.999% certain they are the same. I just don't feel I should override someone else's option and feel super librarians should decide.

If you want my humble opinion 're-edited, revamped, lengthened, enhanced and re-released' editions should be combined.

If you want an opinion fro the figure of authority you would need to wait on our lovely moderator :)

Looks like they were originally part of a multi-author series, and have been republished in a solo-author series -- but are otherwise substantively the same.

I agree they should be combined. The newer series should then be made the first series on both those works.
