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 2012 Spring)
With topics covering everything from the hunting habits of the platypus to why a peacock is so brightly colored, these books are filled with interesting facts about animal defense or appearance. The downside of the breadth of information is that each creature/topic is only given very brief, cursory coverage.
