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.

Contributor Bio(s): Warner, Gertrude Chandler: - Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. Encouraged by the book's success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.
Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Spring)
Created by Gertrude Chandler Warner. The four Alden children solve two new mysteries. In Amazing, they participate in a television show competing against another family to find clues around historic Philadelphia. In Pumpkin, they discover who is haunting a local farm. As with the other series entries, the characterization is weak and plots are thin. The only appeal is familiarity.
