getting funky numbers from sum()

SELECT `itemProdId` , `itemProdQty` , `itemProdSize` , sizeUnitPrice, sum( `itemProdPrice` ) as calcTotal
FROM items
LEFT JOIN sizes ON itemProdId = sizeProductId
where `itemCustId` = -1
and `itemOrdId` = 36
group by itemProdId

I know there is only on one row resulting from this query and i know calcTotal should equal 1.00, i entered the pertaining data as a test row. but when i run the query calcTotal equals 4.00 ??? what gives? i have tried writing the query many different ways. the only time i can get calcTotal to equal 1.00 is when i run it as a single table query. but i want to use this in a php program and combine it into one query. and i want to find out if something is fundamentally unsound in my database. my primary keys seem to match correctly , i don't know what is going on. thanks for any help
