    Book DescriptionThe 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.

    Paul Mantell is the author of over 120 books for children and young adults. Dean Ippolito is one of forty-eight International Chess Masters in the USA. In the past seven years, Mr. Ippolito has coached more than thirty nationally ranked scholastic players. Giacomo Marchesi has been creating 3-D illustrations since 1993. His work has appeared in publications such as Newsweek.
