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.

Publisher Description:
Nature's building blocks have never been more sociable than in this newest offering from the creators of The Periodic Table and Physics. From cells to DNA, from viruses to mammals, from chlorophyll to flowers and fruit, and including the human body's parts and systems, Biology is a single volume BIO101 course. Distinctive characters, a creative pallette, and straight- forward text make it all clear--and fun

Contributor Bio(s): Green, Dan: - Dan Green is a freelance science writer and editor who consulted on Basher's previous book for Kingfisher, The Periodic Table.Basher, Simon: - Artist and designer Simon Basher has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich color palette, his characters fill the gap between edgy manga and the cuteness of Hello Kitty. He lives in England.
Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2009 February)

Gr 3–8—One page each is devoted to entries covering diverse topics from mitochondria, bacteria, and amphibians to T cells, chlorophyll, and fruit. Entries classify the item, highlight three important points, provide a sassy description, and conclude with three interesting facts. The bold and colorful Japanese-influenced graphics anthropomorphize scientific components, adding to the title's appeal for young readers or older reluctant readers trying to get a handle on the basics of biology. A lot of information, some basic and some quite advanced, is introduced, and the book is therefore a bit more unwieldy than Adrian Dingle's The Periodic Table (2007) and Green's Physics (2008, both Kingfisher). However, it is a fun, albeit brief, introduction to a vast topic.—Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY
