This clever and cute kids book shines because of the lovely illustrations. Pablo Prairie Dog is a unique little critter who wanders off to follow the Heroes of the World Wide Chess Championship, a strange mix of professional wrestling and chess. Although the characters and 'matches' are fun to read, the story also has heart...and my nieces and nephews took immediately to the story of friendship and of finding your own voice. I recommend this for kids up to about 6 or 7 years old but it really shines with 3 to 5 year olds.
