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 Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring)
This book, written as a travel guide to the Renaissance era, focuses mainly on Italy rather than attempting to cover all of Europe ("In Florence you will have no problem finding yourself a glamorous outfit"). The narrower geographical focus makes it more accurate than some of its series companions, though it's still best appreciated with some prior historical knowledge. Reading list, timeline, websites.

Gr 5–9— These attractive volumes take a "readers as tourists" approach, providing details on what to see and what to expect if one were to visit medieval Europe and Florence. Each book is chock-full of color photographs and reproductions, maps, sidebars, and age-appropriate humor. The books are organized around logical categories: "Facts…"; "Everyday Life"; "Things to See and Do"; "On the Move"; "If Things Go Wrong"/"Taking Care of Yourself"; "Good and Bad Times to Visit"; and "Useful Information." The authors have done a commendable job of writing texts that measure up to the rich visual layout. Solid introductions to these time periods.—Tracy H.
