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.

Gr 4-7-Succinct and clear writing makes this an accessible portrait of a lesser-known president. Concepts are explained well. The writing is objective and balances the president's accomplishments with his faults and failures. Almost every page includes a color or black-and-white photograph, drawing, or illustration of Van Buren, his contemporaries, or a scene depicting life at the time, such as the interior of a general store. Steven Ferry's Martin Van Buren (The Child's World, 2001) is similar in scope and design, but Doak's work gives more detail and explores issues a little more deeply. The content of Susan Jankowski's Martin Van Buren (Enslow, 2002) is similar, but the pages are designed to look like Web sites.-Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
