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 2008 Spring)
This companion book to the documentary film tells the abbreviated stories of polar bear Nanu and walrus Seela as they journey from youth to adulthood and adapt to climate change in their Arctic environment. The narrative is a bit disjointed because the stories, described in parallel, don't come together. Photographic stills from the movie are stunning. Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
