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.

Created by Simon Basher. Written by Dan Green. Section titles such as "Musculoskeletal Meatheads" and "Nervous Numskulls" demonstrate the tone of this breezy little book. From cells to organs and body systems, the pun-heavy text superficially touches on a wide variety of body-centric topics; facing pages include manga-type illustrations in lollipop colors. Most sections begin and end with three bulleted facts. The important connections between organs and systems go unexplained. Glos., ind. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 4–8—This clever, well-illustrated romp doesn't mince words, but gives students the straight truth about even the most unpleasant functions of the human body. The colorful cartoons accompanying each explanation are somewhat representative; although they are not anatomically accurate in every case, they do help get the key concepts across. The book is divided into sections based on systems, so kids could skip to just what they are interested in or browse through the whole book. This is a fun introduction to how the human body works.—Robin Henry, Wakeland High School, Frisco, TX
