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.

Nobleman offers basic information about medieval knights and Roman gladiators, along with details about warriors from other countries and eras. The topics are presented in splashy two-page chapters. The busy page design includes diagonally set text, captioned photos, vocabulary words at the bottom of the page, and fact boxes, all of which may be distracting to struggling readers.

Gr 3–6— This series offers leveled nonfiction on topics of high interest. The format is bright and busy with a concentric circle pattern repeated throughout. Illustrations are a combination of photographs, drawings, and, in Gladiator and Knight , period reproductions. Picture captions and page-by-page glossaries are printed on bright color backgrounds, and the texts are easy to follow. Animal Spies is similar in scope to other titles that focus on animal predators, including examples of how different animals use their senses to capture prey, find food, and avoid capture. Gladiator and Knight include history, training, legends, and nice tie-ins to modern-day gladiators and knights. These books have briefer texts than most other books on similar topics, making them accessible and appealing to reluctant readers.—Sharon R.
