Reviews

Elena Akhmilovskaya Donaldson Women's Grandmaster, three-time U.S. Women's Chess Champion and two-time Olympic Chess Champion This book will inspire kids and parents to learn and play chess.
Michelle Anderson Executive Director, America's Foundation for Chess Wong takes a game perceived as something only the brainy kids would want to play and brings it to life -- so much so that kids and adults alike will read her book and be left wanting more. More chess, more time to think through a problem, more problems to solve, and definitely more Wong. Put a copy in every classroom!
