The coolest chess book for kids ever!

This is not your typical beginner's chess book! Written by longtime children's book author Paul Mantell, and International Master of Chess Dean Ippolito, Chess in Action effectively captures the excitement of the battle: the thrill of staying one step ahead of your opponent, of launching a surprise attack, of drawing your adversary into a trap. In fun and fresh language, this guide helps young players imagine themselves as generals of their own armies, warriors geared for the fight. At the same time, it conveys all the basic rules and strategies in a clear, straightforward way that provides young players with a well-rounded introduction to the game.

 

Eight sections include :

The Eve of Battle  -  Setup and Soldiers  - Basic Principles  -  The Opening  -  The Middle Game  -  The Endgame  -  The Wide World of Chess  -  Sample Games
