Across the Battlefield harnesses the power of a "whimsical and sparkling" tale to teach kids critical thinking strategies for mastering chess and lessons in character building for succeeding in life.

Across the Battlefield: A Pawn's Journey is entertaining and instructional. Vivid illustrations contribute to the story's appeal to young players. They are mesmerizing and help tell a convincing story about being timid but brave when facing what appears to be overwhelming obstacles... I wish this book was available when my youngest grandchild began to show an interest in chess. It's a heartwarming story that young readers will want to read again and again, and families and friends will enjoy watching their reactions every time too.

- Ray Linville, Editor -

If you think chess is hard... imagine being a pawn! Everyone else is bigger than you, moving around takes forever... and you do not get much respect. For Prunella, a small, unassuming pawn, her greatest dream is to grow into a queen. If only she could make it to the other side of the chess board, then her dream would become a reality. With an entire army standing in her way, however, she doubts it will ever happen.

Join Prunella on her journey across the battlefield, where you will not only experience the game of chess from the viewpoint of a pawn on the board but learn the strategies and techniques it takes to win in the game of chess along with her.
