That's ridiculous! Don't accept it, the book is faulty in effect as they have not made it correctly. Tell them what you feel they should do, ie how much money you want back or if they can contact you as a priority when another becomes available from the ones that are sent back etc...

Keep it - 10000 isn't exactly rare, but if you have a printing error, it makes this a rare item.
Could be worth something in years to come!
Take the £5 too if its on offer!!

Please don't send it back, whatever you do!!! Have you seen how much other items go for that are like this?! When you pass it down or want to sell it (that's if by the way!) then you can show pictures (if on ebay) and i can tell you people will want it and will pay big for it! For some reason, mistakes in books always seem to fetch more in auction. As well, if it's for a child, you could make up a story about it (if they're young enough!) so they'll feel the book's more special. Take the money as well.

Thanks for the advice, I have heard of books with errors being worth more but wasnt sure if that was always the case, as I dont no much about the value of books except obviously in the words inside. Its for my son and I didnt like the idea of giving him something faulty for christmas!!

Hi just thought I would let you know that you are not the only one with this mistake I was looking at the forums on amazon.com and noticed that there is one in america with the same fault. The owner has put it on ebay you should be able to see it by pasteing this into your browser
http://cgi.ebay.com/Tales-of-Beedle-the-Bard-J-K-Rowling-Collectors-ERROR_W0QQitemZ190273082396QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAntiquarian_Collectible?hash=item190273082396&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A2%7C65%3A10%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318
you will also be able to see how much some one is willing to pay for this error sadly no bids at the time of me writing this

DONT SELL IT!!!
This is a true collectors item!!! Even if there are more such "error" copies it is still very valueable.
DONT SELL IT!!!

Hi, thanks for the link, the american seller just got £250 for the same CE error, not that it would make me sell. This is a present for my son. But, interesting all the same, I feel happier about giving it now. Hopefully he will appreciate that its a very special edition!!

What a strange world, where defected products are worth more than the proper ones! I cant get my head round this logic...I really cant!
