Chess City has been captured! The king and queen are missing, and it's up to readers to rescue them. As children learn how each chess piece moves, they must strategically maneuver knights, pawns, bishops, and rooks through mazes filled with hungry wolves, dangerous swamp monsters, and poisonous spiders. Each step leads them closer to the captive king and queen. This adventure is the perfect introduction to the challenges -- and excitement -- of the real game of chess.
