Janice D. (janice_d_green) | 18 comments This book has three editions. The one shown above is the full-color paperback edition.

There is a second edition with a different cover. It has a different ISBN 9780983680857 and it is a B&W paperback coloring book.

The third edition is more nearly like the first, but it is an e-book. ASIN: B08BKX6SPG

I have people waiting to review these books but they couldn't find them on Goodreads. They need to be able to find the covers so they can review the books. It wouldn't make sense for someone to brag on the opportunity to color the pictures if the book isn't a coloring book. They need to be treated separately.

They can see all the editions after they click on the book. The covers are shown below the description.
The books are correctly combined.

Regardless of format, if books are essentially the same, they are always grouped together. Goodreads users generally know this. It's actually more confusing to have them separate, because users will not see the other covers when they click on one of the books.


Janice D. (janice_d_green) | 18 comments Thank you Emily for the link. I didn't know the other editions were still visible. I only saw what was on my author page.

Janice D. (janice_d_green) | 18 comments Thank you everyone who has responded here. Now that I understand how this works, I am truly happy for the way it is set up. I do like how the books are tied together, yet can be found separately as well.
