A button fell off his clothes. It fell off the road and no one found it in the busy streets. Then he was put into a garbage truck and bumped and fell on the side of the road. For a long time, since last spring and winter, it just lay there looking at the sky, looking at the clouds and sometimes seeing nothing … However, one day, it was dug out from the snow by a little fat hand. It was a boy. He was in need of a soldier. His chess was missing a chess piece. From then on, it was called the only “button soldier” in chess. An ordinary button has a new mission. This may be the little boy’s fantasy, perhaps button really becomes a soldier, who knows? In this book, there are many mysteries that need to be solved, and the readers are expected to find out for themselves.
