Margaret and Charlie, what are some of your titles that have been changed? 
Just curious. 

I can offer-
The Calf and the Chemistry Set, published as The Magician's Box
The McCrystals and Martin, pubbed as Welcome to the Weirdie Club
Three in a Bed, pubbed as The Portal
Dangerous Lovers: Sweet and Sour, pubbed as Dangerous Lovers; Roses and 
The Kitchen Visitor, pubbed as Sweetwater Surprise
Pirry Pirimba, pubbed as Shadowdancers
Knight Errand, pubbed as Knight Protector (publisher didn't think anyone 
would get the original pun.)
UFO - pubbed as Aurora. 

Other titles I didn't think I'd get away with, were used... weird, that!
