Sorry, I don't know the answer to your question.  I was wondering if one
of the titles was the American version (having once thought "Believing
is Seeing" was a new book, until I found out it was the US title of
"Minor Arcana"), but hasn't heard of *either* title.  Could
HarperCollins have changed the title, and Amazon not updated?

I did find another new book listed on, "Year of the Griffin",
to be published in October.  No details were given.  Does anybody know
anything about this one?

Also, searching for DWJ on the Internet Bookshop
( -- quicker and more concise than Amazon), I
found that some of her books will be republished at the end of May by
the OUP, as part of the Oxford Children's Modern Classics series.
