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 3-5-Everyone in Katie's fourth-grade class, except her, is going away for spring break. Even her best friend, Sierra, is going to Hawaii. What's worse, the class goody-goody, Claire, has to stay with Katie for the week because of a family emergency. After Katie offers to watch Sierra's cat, China, for the vacation, she decides to start her own pet-sitting business. Suddenly she's also taking care of Mrs. Anderson's dog and another neighbor's exotic fish. Looking after pets is not as easy as it seems, though, when China disappears, the pooch eats a plant, and one of the fish dies. But with the help of Claire, who is still coping with the recent death of her mother, Katie manages to have a spring break she won't soon forget. This quick and light story is fun to read. The short chapters keep the narrative moving and the action never lags. The cover art is also appealing enough to hook animal lovers.-Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
