Please edit the following details:

ISBN13: 9781741662252

I cannot find a reputable source (i.e. author or publisher site) on the internet. Publisher seems to have taken the book off their website. I do own the book however and have matched the ISBN and the ISBN13 from the barcode. Can provide a picture if needed.

I did find it on a bookseller site but the page does not list the ISBN for matching purposes:

The cover on this site is also the correct cover for the book. However, I have read through the rules and policies and I'm not sure if you can make the changes I'm asking for seeing as the source is a bookselller site. But I thought it was worth a try.

Thanks in advance.

Sandra | 23145 comments #4 Another librarian added the cover, I've added the details from Penguin, except we use the Imprint (Puffin) as preferred publisher.

#5 Done. I found the cover on Book Depository, which is owned by amazon.

Stefie (stefanieazar) | 94 comments Hi,

So I have come across something very weird...

ISBN13 9780732272364 links to the following upon search in Goodreads:

However, I have a copy of a book with the same ISBN13 and it's definitely not the book in the link above.

It appears that the book has been listed incorrectly on Amazon as well as the cover is the same as the one listed on the correct book's publisher website. It also incorrectly states that the edition is hardcover when it should be listed as a paperback.

Amazon Link:

Could someone please correct the details?

Thanks in advance.

Stefie (stefanieazar) | 94 comments Sorry me again...

Please correct the following details...
Format: Paperback
Publisher: Voyager (imprint) / HarperCollins Publishers
Publish Date: 30 September 1998
Book First Published: 1998 by HarperCollins Publishers - have a feeling this book may be the original edition so the full date and publisher may be the same as above but not sure how to find this out.


I also have the book.

Please and thank you.

Alex | 2739 comments #8 Even though they are not supposed to, publishers occasionally re-use ISBNs for new books. Another librarian had actually already identified this issue, so I have now added notes that also show in the description to point users towards the other book. Your book already exists here:

Stefie (stefanieazar) | 94 comments Thank you Alex!

message 12: by Alex (new)

Alex | 2739 comments #9 Done. Also got a better quality image of the cover from amazon. As for the original publication date, I added the one you suggested, and if anyone finds an earlier edition, it can be changed again.
