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.

When Jimmy's birthday rolls around, his mom decides to give him a goldfish and a party at SeaLand. Once they arrive, chaos reigns; Jimmy and his guests set off a tidal wave of crazy situations, carefully choreographed in text and art. It's all told by Jimmy's friend Meggie to her mom, who, in the opening spread, demands to know why Meggie has arrived home soaking wet. Their running conversation provides the captions for Kellogg's vibrant illustrations that almost burst off the page with youthful exuberance. The effect is much like a successful real-life birthday party: frenetic for onlookers but fabulous for the celebrators. Ages 4-8. (Sept.) Copyright 1989 Cahners Business Information.
