Chess Rumble

By The Happy Nappy Bookseller

There is much to love about Chess Rumble. . . . This wasn’t a quick fix, it still took time for Marcus to come around. It’s one of the things I loved about Chess Rumble, it seems more realistic that Marcus would be hesitant to trying chess. Neri has created a very believable character in Marcus. Young readers will be able to relate to Marcus, everyone understands anger. Neri’s writing is great, he does not waste a word. . . . Watson’s illustrations are a great visual glimpse into Marcus’s world.— The Happy Nappy Bookseller
