    They are playing a game a lot like checkers and just having fun.  When one of them declares himself champion, a chinchilla comes out of the bushes to challenge the winner.  They play but the chinchilla distracts everyone...

    Fabled Films Press sent me a copy of this book to read and review (thank you).  It has just been published, so you can get a copy now.  I love this series.  The Nocturnals always have message for the young ones.

    While everybody is looking away, he moves the chestnuts so he has good plays.  When he's challenged on the placement of the chestnuts, he cries and admits he is no champion, he's a cheat.  He expects them to reject him but you'll be surprised by what they do next. 

    Josie Yee's artwork is cool.  Tracey's message is a good one for children.  These stories are always good and this is suitable for Grades 1&2.
