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 2012 November)

Gr 2–4—As overviews of certain animal types, these functional volumes suffice, but their scope is too wide for their 24-page boundaries, making them poor choices for research. (Scavengers, for example, discusses vultures, hyenas, opossums, cockroaches, and crabs.) Prosaic writing is interspersed with chatty asides ("Guess what?" in Frogs), and sometimes questionable information ("Because many [sharks] are so strong and fast, they have continued to survive long after the dinosaurs disappeared" in Sharks). Layouts are sometimes unnecessarily cluttered (for example, of Marsupials positions a picture of a dingo atop a virtually identical picture of another dingo); consequently, photos and maps are sometimes too small to be edifying, and minimal captions don't help. The less common titles (Marsupials, Scavengers) may fill gaps in a collection; the others are supplemental purchases where interest is high.—Amy Rowland, Shelter Rock Elementary School, Manhasset, NY
