LexyS | 42 comments There is quite a chaos about the books of some german authors, so i'll try to sort some out, starting with Paul Maar...

Beginning with the Sams-Series:
i have no idea what this shal be... it seems just to be a site stating that there IS a sams-series, but since it isn't pointing to any particular edition, has no reviews or ratings...maybe just remove it?

And I am not sure about audio-books... do they just count as another edition of the actual book?

Book #1:

other editions of it: (audio)

Book #2:

other editions of it: (audio)

Book #3:

other editions of it: (audio)

Book #4:

other editions of it: (audio)

Book #9:

other editions of it: (audio)

then there is a best-of book that's not in the series yet:

and there is a book with the best Sams-Proverbs:

and an e-novella not included in the series yet:

Book #1:

and book #2:

LexyS | 42 comments and the other not-yet-existing here Series is
Das kleine Känguruh (not sure whether to write "Känguruh" or "Känguru" cause there was a spelling reform after the first books were written...)

Book #1:

book #2:

book #3:

book #4:

book #5: is missing completely, but i could add it (does that work? can i add a new book?)

There is a collected volumen of those, too, but it's missing book #3, i think. i don't have it, but what i read about it, says it contains Books 1, 2, 4, and 5.

The series page is indeed not a valid book listing, marked as NOT A BOOK, which removes it from the valid listings.

Audiobooks are valid editions, combined them, and completed some titles.

Added these three missing books, and another one, to the series page.

Arenda | 22167 comments #2 book added to the Herr Bello series

Arenda | 22167 comments #2 series page created for Lippel:

Combined the editions, except Lippels Traum: ein Leseprojekt, which is an adaptation (simplified language). Adaptations (like simplified language, but also graphic novel adaptations, adaptations for theatre/play) should not be combined with the original editions.

Arenda | 22167 comments #3 Series page created:
(I went for Das kleine Känguru)
On series page, the most shelved edition shows on the series page. For the second book, the Spanish edition seems to be shelved by more users than the German edition, so that's why there is a Spanish edition on the series page.

I found the details for book 5 on and added it to GR:
Every GR user can add a new book to GR, so you could have added it yourself. However, it needs a GR Librarian for books to be added to a series.
