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.

Chin-Lee presents a male version of her [cf2]Amelia to Zora[cf1], exploring an alphabet of influential men by first name. Inspired mixed-media illustrations upstage the dry yet informative text. The men range from contemporary celebrities (T is for Tiger Woods) to some whose names are lesser known (E is for Japanese American astronaut Ellison Shoji Onizuka, who perished in the [cf2]Challenger[cf1] disaster). Quotes accompany the entries. Bib. Copyright 2007 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Gr 3-6 -This companion volume to Chin-Lee's Amelia to Zora (Charlesbridge, 2005) has capsule biographies of 26 men-some famous, some lesser-known-representing ethnic diversity and a variety of professions. The entries, all one page, cover individuals as varied as Akira Kurosawa and Pelé. Each page includes brief biographical information and covers the subject's significant contributions in succinct, readable prose. A quote from each man is incorporated into the lovely mixed-media illustrations that grace every entry. Representing several categories of performing arts, writers and poets, architects, political leaders, doctors, and astronauts, the intriguing and informative text expands upon the general conception of what it means to be famous by focusing on what makes a difference in the world. The concluding bibliography leads readers to deeper works in both print and nonprint sources. A worthy purchase, both in informational and illustrative terms, this title provides a starting place for research on any of these figures as it demonstrates the importance of passion in work.-Ann Welton, Grant Elementary School, Tacoma, WA
