Gr. 4-6. Three chess experts explain the history, rules, and strategy behind this ancient "game of kings." Using the Lincolnshire system (developed by Nottingham), the authors introduce each piece from pawn to king separately in practice sessions that demonstrate the piece's strengths and limitations. In the Pawn Game, for instance, players attempt to cross to the opposite side of the board using pawns only. Several famous matches are explained move by move, and frequent sidebars highlight the accomplishments of well-known players. Official terminology, including rank, file, and correct shorthand notation, is used throughout. Clear black-and-white photographs and drawings illustrate each move. Although the title and jacket illustration (which includes milk and cookies) may put off older readers, this useful addition for both school and public library collections will be popular with new chess enthusiasts.
