About the Book
Title: Sir Princess Petra’s Mission – The Pen Pieyu Adventures Book 3
Author: Diane Mae Robinson
Illustrator: Michael Bermundo
Publication Date: January 12, 2016
Publisher: Tate Publishing
Recommended Ages: 7 and up
Sir Princess Petra has already attained her knighthood in the Kingdom of Pen Pieyu and her non-princess-like talent certificate from Talent School, neither of which pleases her father and mother, the king and queen. The king writes up more silly rules in the royal rule book to deter Sir Princess Petra from her knightly ways and useless talent, and turn her into a real princess once and for all. Will the king finally succeed with this newly written, ridiculous mission for Petra?
Ms. Robinson’s word play will delight both young and old readers in book 3 of this charming series. Silly new rules send Sir Princess Petra on a mission, accompanied by her entourage. Snarls continues as her loyal dragon BFF and their antics will, without a doubt, entertain. The Kingdom of Pen Pieyu’s princess gains pride from doing what is right and noble and wins the day while teaching a moral lesson. Fun, full page, grayscale illustrations are included in each chapter and help early readers picture the action. Admittedly, I’m a bit smitten with the big fella, Snarls, and secretly wish he would appear in my neck of the enchanted forest. Petra’s adventures are girl empowering and full of non-stereotypical behavior. This isn’t your average princess story full of tiaras and tutus but is one that can be equally enjoyed by both genders.
