Issues Publishing Physical Copies of Children's book

Hello,

I'm trying to publish physical copies of a children's storybook I wrote but the system won't accept my file. Is there a way to get around the minimum 24 page requirement in this situation?

Thank you

You could try adding a frontispiece and whatever the term is for the end. Obviously you need multiples of 4. Are you using kdp or Createspace? Because WARNING Createspace is better.

Not with POD you don't. POD printers print individual pages, not signatures, so the only requirement is an even number of pages in the final book, but the publisher doesn't need to account for that (you can upload an interior file with an odd number of pages with no problem).
