María This book is a Spanish translation of The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. Here I´ll write a list of issues with this one:
-It should be called "La Isla Misteriosa", not "ISLA MISTERIOSA LA"
-It should figure as written by "Julio Verne", not "Various" or "Jules Verne" (Because that´s how he is called for Spanish speaking people)
-When I go to the "Mysterious Island" page and search for other editions this one should appear as an option since it is the same book, only that in Spanish
-It has 204 numbered pages (the story itself takes up until page 182 but it has extra material)

If someone could make these changes I would be very happy. Thank you for your time

María The ISBN is 978-987-24500-0-7. I don´t know why but when I posted this it appeared to me as if it was linked with the book I mentioned

Until now I thought it was just an abridged version. But with your comment, I checked a little bit closer and while it does credit Julio Verne as the author it also says it was adapted by Patricia Roggio.
(It also has some illustrations by Emiliano Pereyra)

Thank you very much!

Things like reading exercises, questions and stuff for the kids to help them engage with the book and to make sure they understood

Thanks. Those are indeed counted.
