Parker's Chess Adventure
100-Puzzle Chess Tactics Workbook
Parker's Chess Adventure is a story book/workbook that contains 100 one-move tactics puzzles for kids with a playing level around 1000 or less.
There are 10 chapters, each starting with two colorable story pages about Parker the Pawn’s journey to play chess at Kyle the King’s castle. As the story unfolds, readers meet his new friends Danny the Dragon and Betty Bird, who help him find his way. Following the story pages in each chapter are 10 one-move puzzles. Every chapter focuses on a different chess tactic and begins with an example that represents the puzzles in that chapter.
Chapter One: Find the Hanging Pieces
Chapter Two: Find the Safe Squares
Chapter Three: Find the Forks
Chapter Four: Find the Pins
Chapter Five: Find the Skewers
Chapter Six: Find the Trapped Pieces
Chapter Seven: Find the Discovered Attacks
Chapter Eight: Find the Best Moves
Chapter Nine: Find the Double Checks
Chapter Ten: Find the Mate in Ones
Many chess puzzle books ask the reader to solve all the puzzles from the perspective of the white pieces. But that's not realistic. In Parker's Chess Adventure, the reader will be asked to solve puzzles from the vantage point of the black pieces as well.
