Why is my book rejected because of the table of contents?


I have submitted a chidlren's book, so there are not multiple chapters.  There is only one "chapter" which is teh entire 40-page book.


IBook Author automatically creates a table of contents, which just has one chapter.


When I click on the chapter, it does not go to the next page.  So once someone downloads the book from ibook, they are stuck on the table of contents page.


That seems to be a big reason for why it is getting rejected, although the actual text is cryptic:


6.1.4. Incomplete/Inaccurate Functional Table of Contents

The EPUB's spine in the NCX is used to create the table of contents in iBooks and provides a direct navigational link to the appropriate sections of the book. Since it is a key element to the customer's interaction with a book, all EPUB spines must contain a complete listing of all chapters or book sections.

iBook, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
