Synopsis

Chess in Action From First Attack to Checkmate by Paul Mantell, Dean Ippolito

This title conveys all the basic rules and strategies of chess in a clear, straightforward way that provides young players with a fun, well-rounded introduction to the game. It is a fresh guide that helps young players imagine themselves as generals of their own armies, warriors geared for the fight! It is aimed at children age 9 to 12 years old. This is not a typical beginner's chess book! Written by long-time 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, and 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.
