vicki_girl | 2765 comments As previous discussed in this thread Walmart published a number of classic books all using the same ISBN 1559029838.

Well, it looks like they did something similar with a set of Oz books by L. Frank Baum.

ISBN 1559029897 is currently listed as The Lost Princess of Oz in the GR database. However, a quick search of abebooks.com lists at least eight different titles, all Oz books, with that ISBN. It's not hard for me to imagine that all 14 of the original Oz books by Baum were printed that way and are probably floating out there somewhere. (Note: I have "The Land of Oz" and "The Emerald City of Oz" both with ISBN 1559029897 in my hand right now.)

Similar to the previous Walmart Classics issue, I was going to create a "Walmart Oz Books" dummy entry, with a similar explanation.

Thoughts? Objections?

Sounds like a plan.
