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.

PreS-Gr 2—Bright cartoon illustrations introduce readers to facts about Planet Earth and its animals. Although the images add humor, such as a frog adjusting the satellite dish on his tree house or a shark steamrolling fish to turn them into flatfish, the pictures do little to enhance the texts and detract from the real-life photographs. All photographs are placed over the illustrations on yellow Post-it note images and are so small that details like the Komodo dragon's forked tongue are not visible. The pictures may also be misleading to some childen, such as the one showing a cheetah racing a panda, a shark, and a whale. At times, the author creates her own compound words like "supersticky" and "superhot." These titles fall short in comparison to the "Tell Me Why, Tell Me How" series (Marshall Cavendish), which includes photographic images, suggested kid-friendly activities, and lists of books and websites for additional information.—Meaghan Darling, Plainsboro Public Library, NJ
