Parker's Chess Adventure
"I want you to know that your books
have captured the imagination of my chess students. I have noticed
a difference in my tournaments. Many of my students are playing
much better. In fact, one of my junior high students asked for one
when I was giving them out to my elementary students. He won 1st
place in our last tournament! You're making a positive impact in
the world of chess."

"Our elementary school chess club
in South Texas recently began studying tactics with the help of
Parker’s Chess Adventure. It really paid off when a 6 member
team from our club won first place in our first area tournament!
I was impressed with how this book kept our kids focused with the
use of colorable, appealing characters with an amusing tale along
with great tactical puzzles. Thank you Dave, for making it easy
to instill a love of chess in young children."
