The Chess Piece Magician

The Chess Piece Magician

Douglas Bruton’s first novel tells a fictional story behind the famed Lewis chessmen, which date from the 12th century and were found in Uig Bay in the 1830s.

This fantasy adventure accompanies the recent craze about the Lewis Chessmen and is used by the National Museum of Scotland to get children acquainted with them and excited about them.

I think I would have loved this as a child! I must get hold of a copy.
