Product Description:

After being scooped from the bottom of the sea, destined for a seafood restaurant, Wiley the crab escapes and embarks on a series of adventures that lead him to the campus of the University for People and Creatures. While there, he meets a host of interesting characters who inspire him to change his future prospects by attending college himself one day.

Part of the College for Texans Campaign to motivate 300,000 more students to enroll in college by 2015, Wiley's Way is a unique collaboration. This bilingual chapter book, targeted at 4th, 5th, and 6th graders, was written and illustrated by twelve high school students from the Academy@Hays of the Hays Consolidated Independent School District as part of the Katherine Anne Porter Literary Center's Young Writers Program in Kyle, Texas. The students were guided by MFA students from the Creative Writing Program at Texas State University.

Funded by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the College for All Texans Foundation, Wiley's Way is designed to prompt children, especially those who might not otherwise aspire to a college education, to begin thinking about college at an earlier age. Since Wiley's character was created and developed by teenage students, he has a unique appeal and resonance for younger readers. Wiley's Way demystifies the college experience and addresses practical concerns such as preparing for and paying for college.

Young readers, parents, and teachers can find out more about the Wiley's Way project by visiting www.WileysWay.net.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
