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.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2015 Spring)
Originally published in the Childhood of Famous Americans series, these fictionalized biographies are reissued with a new series name but are otherwise unchanged, dated-looking black-and-white illustrations and all. Focusing on events in each historical figure's childhood, the congenial narratives read smoothly with natural-sounding invented dialogue. Both books end "many years later..." with accounts of the subject's adult accomplishments. [Review covers these History's All-Stars titles: Walt Disney and Betsy Ross.]
