CreativeWork can't be a Product?

i'm busy at the moment with marking up with microdata of an online bookstore and realized the following dilemma:
if a page is about describing and selling of a CreativeWork/Book, so i come to selling properties with itemprop="offers" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/Offer". But on this way i can't describe the book i sell like Product, with product's properties - i can't find any passage from CreativeWork to Product. There is in fact a passage from Offer to Product, with itemprop="itemOffered" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/Product", but repeating isn't a good way, beside of this it isn't easy to get such passage into html, even with itemref.

I see no possibility to go the way CreativeWork->Product->Offer (or CreativeWork->Product and CreativeWork->Offer), but only CreativeWork->Offer, or Product->Offer. CreativeWork can't be a Product or am i wrong?

Imho CreativeWork surely can own product's properties so it must gladly have a passage from any CreativeWork property to Product.
best regards
