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 6-9-Two titles that provide a wealth of information. Invertebrates includes one-celled organisms, sponges, mollusks, arthropods, echinoderms, cnidarians, and various types of worms. Vertebrates explores the similarities and differences in physical features and behavior of members of the major classes of phylum Chordata with chapters devoted to fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. The texts are well written and readable, but, unfortunately, their format is dull and unappealing. Black-and-white photographs vary in quality; some are dark and indistinct. Simple Animals (Facts on File, 1989) by Linda Losito and others offers colorful and informative photographs, charts, and diagrams, with similar chapter arrangement, but each is divided into subheadings, making it easier to read and locate information. Nonetheless, Aaseng's books are good, solid resources for reports.-Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukee, OR Copyright 1994 Cahners Business Information.
