message 1: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn King-Moore (madelyn_king-moore) | 9 comments I was just adding some of the kid's books I've collected to my profile, and I noticed quite a few don't have any covers. For instance, one of them is THE BEAR BOOK by Jan Pfloog (ISBN: 0307689778). I don't know if anyone could add a cover, but I've found an image for it on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Bear-Golden-Sha....

If anyone is interested, I could also list and add links to some of the other missing covers I've found. They're mainly older books and they don't have that many reviews, but I just thought I'd try to help out where I could. I'm not a librarian, but I'd just like to do what I can if possible.

Thanks!

lethe | 14195 comments Added, although there was some conflicting info on Amazon: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6...

We're definitely interested. If you could provide links to the books on GR and to a source we can use (such as Amazon) that would be very helpful, thanks!

Madelyn King-Moore (madelyn_king-moore) | 9 comments Here's the next one I found.

Tyrannosaurus : Dinosaurs Series by Janet Riehecky (ISBN: 9780895654243).

I found a copy of the cover on this website: http://www.biblio.com/9780895654243

lethe | 14195 comments I'm afraid biblio.com is not a site we can use. Only Amazon, AbeBooks, Bookdepository, authors' and publishers' websites and national/public libraries are allowed. Alternatively, your own scan or photo would be fine as well.

Madelyn King-Moore (madelyn_king-moore) | 9 comments Also Tumbledown (ISBN: 0744506794) by Paul Rogers at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I found an image for the book on Amazon and Biblio.com. They're here http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_nos... and here http://www.biblio.com/search.php?stag...

Madelyn King-Moore (madelyn_king-moore) | 9 comments Baby Kermit's Opposites (ISBN: 0717282864) at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8... has pictures on these sites: http://www.amazon.com/Kermits-Opposit... and http://www.bozzybooks.com/proddetail.... .

There's not a lot of info on the sites, but I can attest that they are the correct covers.

Madelyn King-Moore (madelyn_king-moore) | 9 comments And here's the last one I'll mention for now.

Mr. Skinny (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...) has the wrong cover attached to it. There are some alternative images that are correct, but when you look it up, it has Mr. Fussy as the first image you see.

Thanks for all your help, and I'll post some more soon. If there's any way I could help, I'd gladly change them, but I don't think I have access since I'm not a librarian.

Thanks again though. It's always great helping Goodreads.

So sorry about that, and thanks for the info. I found another photo on the author's website here: http://www.janetriehecky.com/Books.ht... .

Hope that helps.

lethe | 14195 comments #6 Added info and cover from AbeBooks, as that had a better picture quality: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

#7 You linked to the 1988 edition, but the ISBN you gave belongs to the 1992 edition. I found a different cover on AbeBooks for the 1992 edition: http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookD.... Bookseller image, which means that the seller photographed their own copy.
Just want to doublecheck that you do indeed have the 1992 edition and that it looks like the one on Amazon.

"If there's any way I could help, I'd gladly change them, but I don't think I have access since I'm not a librarian."
Non-librarians can only add covers while adding a book, but editing can only be done by librarians.

Thanks for your help!

lethe | 14195 comments Janet Riehecky's website is a veritable treasure trove, I was able to add a lot of covers from there.


message 13: by Bryan (new)

Bryan Way (bryanway) The original cover for my book: Life After The Arising by Bryan Way was as a result of a misprint, and is far too dark. The proper cover is reflected on the Amazon page, which uses an unfortunately compressed image. Could one kindly librarian change both the primary and Kindle cover to this brighter, uncompressed image:
Life After: The Arising cover

Undone. It's not just better quality; it needs an alternate cover edition.
