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.

Gr 2-4-In condensing the lives and work of these complex artists, Bennett lapses into oversimplification and generalizations. This is particularly true when the author discusses the artists' emotions. "Sometimes Jackson's sadness made him angry." Adult issues of alcoholism, adultery, and womanizing are appropriately omitted; however, using words like "happy" and "unhappy" are often inadequate in describing the feelings of these movement-leading artists. The texts jump from fact to fact, and do not flow smoothly. The time lines give more facts than the narratives. For the most part, the suggestions for further reading are written at a higher grade level. Photographs of the artist and a dozen or so reproductions are included in each book as well as illustrations of scenes from the artist's life; however, the fictional quality of the latter renderings detracts from the factual nature of these titles. The reproductions are identified, but the sketches and photographs are not. Biographies for young readers are in demand; however, these titles should not be high on your list of purchases.-Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
