This book does not say it on the cover but once I received it I realized it is the repeat of "Melvin Might?". My nephew loves these books and I was so excited when I thought I had found a new book for the series, just to find out it was one he already had. The book says it is previously published under a different name but by the website the picture conveniently does not have it on the cover!
