Timmy loves to play checkers and never loses. He is known to always win this game, and it means a lot to him that no one can beat him. Timmy even practices new moves at playing chess to surprise his opponent and to be unpredictable.
Timmy has a best friend named Wolly. They go to school together. Wolly also likes to play checkers as well. Timmy and Wolly decide to have a tournament. Wolly does not believe he can beat Timmy but wishes to do so very much.
Both of these boys want to win and have plans with what they are going to do with their trophies.
What makes this book special is that it teaches the act of kindness and that sometimes winning is not always going to bring you happiness. Sometimes, giving your opponent the chance to win can also make you happy and feel like a winner too.
Timmy realizes that Wolly has a much more meaningful plan for the trophy if he wins the match, and so he allows his best friend to beat him.
I strongly recommend this book to parents looking for meaningful books.
