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.

Cub Reporter "interviews" American figures who overcame challenges to achieve their goals. Each subject responds to simplistic questions about his or her complicated life (e.g., "What did you think about being a slave?" in Douglass) in a hokey first-person voice. Cartoons of a microphone-holding bear cub alternate with captioned photos or illustrations that extend information. The premise may work for reluctant readers. Reading list, timeline, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers the following Cub Reporter Meets Famous Americans titles: What's Your Story, Amelia Earhart?, What's Your Story, Paul Revere?, What's Your Story, Susan B. Anthony?, and What's Your Story, Frederick Douglass?.] Copyright 2016 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 2–4—A whimsical approach to biographies sure to appeal to young readers. While promoting inquiry-inspired learning, the question-and-answer format also invites confusion by juxtaposing a cartoon with a real person's story that might leave children wondering what's real. Then there's the "time-difference factor": Cub asks questions in the present tense, and "respondents," all dead, answer thus—and compare their lives to today. Finally, a disclaimer in each title concedes the "interviews" aren't each subject's actual spoken words but comprise accurate, researched facts about his/her life. Younger students won't get the distinction. Other missteps: Earhart's disappearance is mentioned only in her time line; Douglass includes the question "What did you think about being a slave?". Still, these overviews give a sense of who these people were and are filled with color and high-quality contemporary photos and other visuals. VERDICT Despite hiccups, a good introduction to biographies, with Sequoyah, Paul Revere, and Wilma Rudolph the best of the series.
