Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 1991 March)
Gr 4-8-- This short biography may not reach the audience for which it was intended because most readers of this age won't be familiar with Dickens's work, with the possible exception of A Christmas Carol . The text reads smoothly and quickly as it describes how Dickens managed to leave his poverty-stricken past behind, but not to forget it. It also serves as a vehicle to list all of his various works. The full-page pen-and-ink drawings are superb. A broad overview that might be best used as a hi/lo title. --Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS Copyright 1991 Cahners Business Information.
