4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mary Stewart Butterfield on September 7, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the second tie this has happened to me buying through Amazon - this "edition" is not actually a published book, it's simply a copy of the story, put inside a cover. There is no publisher, and often the formatting is wrong. I returned it right away, but since I had to pay $4 shipping, the whole thing was a mistake. I'll be more vigilant in the future, but Amazon should really make clear that some of the things they advertise as "books" are actually just photocopies.
