The Black Queen is what Billy calls his weird neighbour. She always wears a black cloak and a wide black hat. She lurks in her garden, alone except for her black cat. Spooky or what? So when the Black Queen asks Billy to look after her cat, he’s nervous. Still, he can’t resist peeking into her shadowy house. Inside, there are chessboards everywhere. What game is the Black Queen playing? Is Billy brave enough to find out?
