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 2009 Spring)
Although presented as nonfiction, this picture book about the close, if thorny, relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass is unsourced and replete with invented dialogue and questionable suppositions (for example, that Mary Todd Lincoln was against the abolition of slavery). Illustrations, including some dramatic gatefold spreads, are atmospherically shaded. Timeline. Copyright 2009 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
