Scholastic is pre-selling this book at a 30% discount for $9.76. Amazon you usually do better than this.

Amazon is now selling this for much less than that. I believe what Scholastic is preselling is a soft-cover version, Amazon's is the hard-cover.

It's the paperback version for sure.

We just got our latest Scholastic Flyers and Scholastic is definitely selling the paperback version. Amazon's is the hard cover version, but without any bookmarks (as far as I can tell).

Scholastic is a couple bucks more, but is getting it to the schools on the RELEASE DATE, Amazon is SHIPPING via Prime on the release date (Nov. 15) to be rec'd November 17. I'm canceling my Amazon order.

Last year we bought the scholastic version - soft cover and it was late and missing pages. All the kids who received it had the same missing pages. We now just order it from Amazon.

I wouldn't cancel unless you can buy the hard cover version locally for the same price (very unlikely). Like the person posted after you, the Scholastic version is the soft cover and they had major issues. At least with Amazon, if you have problems, they'll send you a new one immediately (probably 1 or 2 day for your troubles)..or a partial refund if that's what you request.

You'll probably have a 2-3 week turnaround with Scholastic, if there are issues.

I'll buy from a store and spend a bit more. My point was I want it on release day. Amazon Ships other items so they can be received on release day, not sure why it can't be done in this case too.

I think that if Amazon could, they certainly would. I don't mind waiting an extra day or two. My kids always end up with so much homework during the week anyways, I'd rather they not have the distraction until the weekend.

I agree. When I ordered copies for my school I was under the impression that it would arrive on the release date, like the Harry Potter books did. If I had realized that I would have just bought them in the store in my town at Barnes and Noble.
