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 1–3—Two fresh, short biographies for newly independent readers. Each book is unbroken by chapters, and both lack an index. And, interestingly, each one gives a pronunciation guide to just one word-"Iroquois" in Champlain and "phonograph" in Edison. Champlain's childhood can only be surmised. He was born around 1580 in France, according to the text, although the CIP lists his birth year as 1567. Edison takes readers from the subject's childhood in Ohio, where he was born in 1847, to his death 84 years later. His more famous inventions are mentioned. In both books, the writing is clear if sedate, and the type is large. Abundant pen-and-ink illustrations are finely rendered and enhance each text. There are several books for this age range about Edison, such as David A. Adler's worthy A Picture Book of Thomas Alva Edison (Holiday House, 1996), but there is little information available for this audience on Champlain.—Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
