$15.99
More Info

This fun, educational middle grade story book harnesses the power of a "whimsical and sparkling" tale to teach kids critical thinking strategies for mastering chess and lessons in social and emotional learning for succeeding in life.


***

"In this enchanting children's story, we follow the adventures of Prunella the pawn, as she attempts to fulfil her dream of becoming a queen... Beautifully written throughout, this is truly a work that will capture the imagination of players (& readers) young and old alike.


Across the Battlefield also sets out chess tips which will be useful to those starting out. These cover a range of topics including castling, controlling the centre, 'making all of your pieces happy, ' pawn chains and square control. These aren't fully comprehensive, textbook style, nor are they intended to be - but they are enough to get a new player thinking, which is clearly the aim of the book.


Jonathan Ferry has a real talent as a teacher and as a writer... I would recommend gifting Across the Battlefield in combination with a standard introductory chess book. The two together would give a new young player a lot of enjoyment and - with a bit of luck - a lifelong love of chess." - Ben Graff, English Chess Federation



"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... It's a heartwarming story that young readers will want to read again and again." - Ray Linville, Editor - Chess.com



"Across the Battlefield: A Pawn's Journey is a lovely story, beautifully written and enchantingly illustrated, that will appeal to many children - especially, but not only, girls - aged from about 6 or 7 upwards...many children will, understandably, fall in love with the book, and, perhaps, be hooked on chess for life as a result." - British Chess News



"Across the Battlefield: A Pawn's Journey receives four stars. The story is well-told and the illustrations are absolutely beautifully done... For anyone wanting to teach chess to a young child or grandchild, this is a good little book." - American Chess Magazine



"Across the Battlefield is a captivating tale and guide that could help young players learn and enjoy chess." - Kirkus Reviews


***

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.

"These books are, quite simply, brilliant. . . .Thrilling, bloody, action-packed stories from American history." --New York Times

Learn the thrilling true story of the Texas Revolution and the Battle of the Alamo with the New York Times bestselling graphic novel series!

"Remember the Alamo!" That rallying cry has gone down in Texas history. But what, exactly, should we remember? Who were the ragtag group of adventurers behind the famous slogan, and how did they end up barricaded in a fort against a Mexican army? Who survived, who died, and how?

In the early 1800s, Native Americans, the Mexican government, and settlers from other areas of the United States were fighting over the territory that would become the Lone Star state. Here vivid illustrations--rendered in black, white, and shades of gray, with tinges of yellow--and witty text tell the story, from Texas's near wilderness beginnings to the Battle of the Alamo and General Sam Houston's ultimate victory over General Antonio López de Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto.

Let "Nathan Hale" tell the tale of the Texas fight for independence from the Mexican government. It features the exploits of the notorious Jim Bowie, as well as Stephen Austin, Davy Crockett, and other "all-star" settlers and soldiers who made the wild frontier of Texas their home--until the bitter end.

BOMB (GRAPHIC NOVEL): THE RACE

BOMB (GRAPHIC NOVEL): THE RACE

$24.99
More Info

A riveting graphic novel adaptation of the award-winning nonfiction book, Bomb--the fascinating and frightening true story of the creation behind the most destructive force that birthed the arms race and the Cold War.

In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: When placed next to radioactive material, a Uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned three continents.

In Great Britain and the United States, Soviet spies worked their way into the scientific community; in Norway, a commando force slipped behind enemy lines to attack German heavy-water manufacturing; and deep in the desert, one brilliant group of scientists was hidden away at a remote site at Los Alamos. This is the story of the plotting, the risk-taking, the deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb.

New York Times bestselling author Steve Sheinkin's award-winning nonfiction book is now available reimagined in the graphic novel format. Full color illustrations from Nick Bertozzi are detailed and enriched with the nonfiction expertise Nick brings to the story as a beloved artist, comic book writer, and commercial illustrator who has written a couple of his own historical graphic novels, including Shackleton and Lewis & Clark.

Accessible, gripping, and educational, this new edition of Bomb is perfect for young readers and adults alike.

Praise for Bomb (2012):
"This superb and exciting work of nonfiction would be a fine tonic for any jaded adolescent who thinks history is 'boring.' It's also an excellent primer for adult readers who may have forgotten, or never learned, the remarkable story of how nuclear weaponry was first imagined, invented and deployed--and of how an international arms race began well before there was such a thing as an atomic bomb." --The Wall Street Journal

"This is edge-of-the seat material that will resonate with YAs who clamor for true spy stories, and it will undoubtedly engross a cross-market audience of adults who dozed through the World War II unit in high school." --The Bulletin (starred review)

Discover the Korean War through the eyes of the journalist who covered it in this installment of the New York Times bestselling graphic novel series

In 1950, Marguerite Higgins (1920-1966) was made bureau chief of the Far East Asia desk for the New York Herald Tribune. Tensions were high on the Korean peninsula, where a border drawn after WWII split the country into North and South. When the North Korean army crossed the border with Soviet tanks, it was war. Marguerite was there when the Communists captured Seoul. She fled with the refugees heading south, but when the bridges were blown over the Han River, she was trapped in enemy territory. Her eyewitness account of the invasion was a newspaper smash hit. She risked her life in one dangerous situation after another--all for the sake of good story. Then she was told that women didn't belong on the frontlines. The United States Army officially ordered her out of Korea. She appealed to General Douglas MacArthur, and he personally lifted the ban on female war correspondents, which allowed her the chance to report on many of the major events of the Korean War.
