The Foolish King is the first children’s book by Mark Price and was written to teach his daughter how to play chess. There's also an interactive iPad app that's ideal for children aged six and above. Using the same story and Martin Brown’s illustrations, it features clear tutorials, tips on how to improve your technique and suggestions for chess moves to try.
The book is available on Amazon as well as good bookshops everywhere. The app can be downloaded from the iTunes store.
