Behind the scenesEdit

The cover states that the book is written by Aaron Rosenberg, where as most big-name websites found online say that it is in fact written by Tracey West.

Although the publisher's store website lists the book as intended for ages 7-12[1], the set age minimum is inconsistent among online websites, implying the intended age groups are 8-12[2], or 9-12[3].
