Ekaterina Okuneva (okuneshku) | 3193 comments There are two books under the same ISBN, they are both on site, here is the one from 2000 with 179 pages: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
ISBN is moved to a latter edition (ACE): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Joe | 2323 comments I have the 2nd one and the information I put up is correct


message 6: by Alex (new)

Alex | 2739 comments Page count updated, but the publication date is referring to the cover, so we would only change it if we knew exactly when this cover edition was released.


message 7: by Joe (new)

Joe | 2323 comments it was not 2020 and it says 2000 in the book

Ekaterina Okuneva (okuneshku) | 3193 comments I'm sorry I didn't fully understand this from the beginning.
I just checked ACE edition with the librarian who created it. The date set to 2020 because ACE function automatically fills in the current month and year as the published date. Now I see that both books are from 2000, not 2020 and only covers are different.
So it's finally done.

That's the copyright date. Does it have a printing date?


message 10: by Joe (new)

Joe | 2323 comments its exact words are first scholastic printing may 2000

rivka | 42000 comments Mod
That means the first Scholastic printing was in May 2000. Not necessarily that this is it.

What printing number is it? There should be a row of numbers near the bottom of the copyright page.

Joe | 2323 comments is this it?
12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 1 2 3 4 5/0

rivka | 42000 comments Mod
That's all on one line?


message 14: by Joe (new)

Joe | 2323 comments yes with a gap in the middle


message 15: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 42000 comments Mod
Ah! Ok, where is the gap?


message 16: by Joe (new)

Joe | 2323 comments between the first 1 and 0

Ok, that's a first printing.

Thanks for confirming.
