Error Running sample GraphQL query on Books with Authors

See original GitHub issue

Hello, I was re-testing the Cosmos Starter doc GraphQL queries (dab updated to latest 0.2.52 version) based on and found that while simple GraphQL query on single entity worked fine, query on multiple entity/types from that Doc example (Books and Authors) failed with Type error - See below.

    "errors": [
            "message": "The field `authors` does not exist on the type `Book`.",
            "locations": [
                    "line": 7,
                    "column": 7
            "path": [
            "extensions": {
                "type": "Book",
                "field": "authors",
                "responseName": "authors",
                "specifiedBy": ""
