I went to list a book on my bookshelf and when I put the ISBN # in it came up with a different but related book?  How do I list it?

The book I have is: Noah and the Ark and other Bible Stories ISBN # 0752599704

The system shows: The Birth of Jesus and other Bible Stories  ISBN #  0752599704

A search of the system also turned up these two books which seem to be the one I have but the numbers do not match:

Noah and the Ark and Other Bible Stories
Author: Queen Street House
ISBN-13: 22004 - ISBN-10: 

Noah and the Ark and other Bible Stories
Author: P3 Publishing
ISBN-13: 332690 - ISBN-10: 
The Publisher is PS Publishing Queen Street House, so how should I list this book?

Hi Tory,

You'll need to use the Post a Book without an ISBN option and manually enter all of the book's information.  Unfortunately, publishers often reuse numbers for similar books.
