liebevolle Illustrationen

Die große Stärke dieses Buches besteht in der Kombinationen aus kurzen Erklärtexten und einer dazugehörigen Illustration. Man findet also immer zwei bis drei Sätze und ein passendes kindgerechtes Bild dazu.

Zu Anfang werden die Figuren erklärt, anschließend zwei Eröffnungen (Spanisch, Slawisch) und einige taktische Kombinationen und Mattmuster. Was leider fehlt sind Minispiele wie z.B. das Springeräpfelspiel oder die Bärenthaler Bauernkloppe.

Der letzte Teil behandelt Endspiele. Die dort gezeigten Endspiele sind - gerade im Vergleich zum Anfang, wo ja nur die Figuren erklärt werden - recht schwer.

Vorteil: guter Aufbau, schöne Illustrationen, kindgerecht erklärt
Nachteil: Minispiele fehlen, Endspielteil recht schwer
