If you click into the book detail page and go to the More Options drop down, you will see Edit Book Data. Submit an edit for the title and the Book Data Edit team will look into it.

eta: Unfortunately it looks like the ISBN can probably not be changed, but they should take out the book cover. The ISBN appears to be used for the Tik Tok Book at one time, and with copies already in the system, they usually won't change it. You will proably need to use the post a book without an ISBN process.

I found another book in the database:
http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/34363-Emerald+City+of+Oz+The

All the book information and cover is correct. However, the ISBN number listed is the ISBN 13 number. The book I have does not have an ISBN 13 number. It has the ISBN 10 number, which isn't listed.

So, could I post the book there? Or would that be wrong?

Sorry, you cannot post to another ISBN. A book must match the system on Title, ISBN, Author, and binding type.  If you send a book that doesn't match on one of those 4 points, the receiver can mark it as RWP - Wrong book received and if they ask, you'd be need to return the credit.

Heidi, when you do a search on the internet for ISBN 1559029897 you can come up with multiple books that have the same #....

"The Lost Princess of Oz" by L. Frank Baum

"Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum

and

"Tik Tok of Oz" by Glenda Baum (another site lists it by L. Frank Baum)
