The 12-year-old chess prodigy from New Jersey, Abhimanya Mishra (above), broke the world record on June 30 when he won first place
at the
Vezérképző GM Mix 2021, a 10-round Swiss chess tournament
that took place in Budapest, Hungary.

Mishra defeated grandmaster Leon Luke Mendonca, 15, of India,
seconds before the match ended.

“It feels amazing,” Mishra told Fox & Friends Saturday. “All my
years of hard work, everything, finally paid off.”

BIRTHDAY OF A CHILDREN’S BOOK AUTHOR

 

The Cat in the Hat is a 1957 children’s book written and illustrated
by the American author Theodore Geisel, using the
pen name Dr.
Seuss

The book was met with immediate critical and commercial success.

Reviewers praised it as an exciting alternative to traditional primers.

Three years after its debut, the book had already sold over a million
copies, and in 2001, Publishers Weekly listed the book at number

nine on its list of best-selling children’s books of all time. It was
adapted into a 1971 animated television special and a 2003 live-
action film

When Little Golden Books were first published in 1942 by Random
House, when high-quality books for children hadn’t been available
at a price most people could afford. Little Golden Books changed
that! Priced at just 25 cents and sold where people shopped every 
day, they caused an instant sensation and were soon purchased 
by the hundreds of thousands. Created by such talented writers 
as Margaret Wise Brown (author of Goodnight Moon) and Richard 
Scarry, Little Golden Books have helped millions of children 
develop a lifelong love of reading.
