Title

What's up with the title of this article? -- Danny (talk) 04:09, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

From googling around, it would appear that "Sesame Street Characters: Long and Short" and ""Big Bird's Book About Up and Down" are alternate titles for the same book. But there's no way to tell which came first, and no image appears for either anywhere. I agree, it's confusing to have one title as the name of the page, and the other in the text. I don't know which to prioritize, mind, but at this point, it seems we should either change the title in the text and mention Up and Down as the alternate, or move and mention the other title. Probably the matter can be completely settled once an actual cover (or two) is found, but as it is now, it's just confusing. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 04:38, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
The Big Bird title sounds more likely than "Sesame Street Characters". I've never seen a Sesame book with a title like that. -- Danny (talk) 04:44, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm not sure it's a case of what's "more likely," since Amazon has records for that title (and for some odd reason, it was apparently also cited in a book on Indian puppetry). Actually, turns out that we already have a Big Bird's Book About Up and Down page, with a different ISBN number. So it seems they're not the same book, but Wendy just cut and pasted info from the other page without changing the title, and Scott didn't catch it either. That's how it looks right now, anyway. Again, I can't find any images for either. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 06:16, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure I just goofed up when I pasted the text as Andrew suggested; I was doing a whole bunch at once. They are different books and both are part of a whole series on music. -- Wendy (talk) 18:33, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
I've got open eBay alerts for all the "About Music" titles. So if they go on sale, I'll be getting copies. —Scott (talk) 19:18, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
