ISBN 0486426475

Title George Washington Coloring Book (Dover Pictoral)

This book has the story written in and also coloring pages which are clean.

What do you all think?

It is my understanding that coloring books are NOT postable, even if they are like new.

Nope, I've done a bit of investigating and even though it has an ISBN because it says and is a coloring book it's not postable.  You can offer it in the Book Bazaar but not on your shelf.

Thanks to Sherry here's the link about coloring books.  I learned something myself.  I thought since it wasn't what I consider a coloring book, just pages to be colored it might be okay.

I did a search and found the book.  No members are wishing but it does have a Post This Book button so it might be okay.

This does not make a difference. There are tons of things in the system that are not postable on PBS, but come in from the sources PBS uses because they have ISBNs. Coloring books are NOT postable on PBS. Since it is a book, I think you'd be able offer it in the Book Bazaar for a credit, you just cannot post it into the system. It also might not qualify for MM, you'd want to check on that before sending it.
