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.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2015 Spring)
Originally published in the Childhood of Famous Americans series, this fictionalized biography is reissued with a new series name but is otherwise unchanged--which, in this case, is unfortunate. The dated-looking black-and-white illustrations, rather quaint in other volumes in the series, here feature stereotypically portrayed African Americans and Native Americans. The (invented) dialogue veers close to offensive as well.
