Top Customer Reviews
I suspect that publishers of children's books feel a need to keep their page counts down. Perhaps they think that expecting a nine-year-old to read more than a hundred pages about a topic like chess is just too much to ask. They might be right -- I don't know -- but the answer in that case is to market something that covers less of the game and in a more gentle fashion.
