How to Play Chess Like an Animal

How to Play Chess Like an Animal is a fun and imaginitive way to get kids interested and playing chess in no time! The brightly Anthea's Daughter is happy with the bookcolored illustrations, done by ex-Hanna-Barbera artist, Linn Trochim, and the easy-to-read stories by chess pros Anthea Carson and Life Master Brian Wall turns a chess lesson into a delightful fairy tale. This 69-page book comes complete with lessons on how to read chess games.

"Carson and Wall have taken instruction on how to play the game of chess, added a beefy glossary of chess terms, folded in some home-spun wisdom, and spiced it heavily with frequently subversive silliness...

... Each animal opening in the book is delightfully illustrated by Trochim, who has in the past drawn animated characters from the “Flintstones,” “Scooby Doo,” and “Fat Albert and Friends.

It makes the book attractive to adults too, who might want to learn to play chess along with their kids or grandkids".
