Overview

Sir Princess Petra has already proven she is a kind and noble knight. This, however, does not please the king and queen--they want her to behave like a princess and forget this silly knight nonsense of hers!

But when the king writes a new rule in the royal rule book that requires her to attend Talent School and acquire a princess talent certificate or suffer the spell of the royal magician, Petra, reluctantly, agrees to go. But who could have guessed what Sir Princess Petra's Talent would be?

""Petra must go to Talent School to get a certificate in a talent befitting a princess. But who knew that her talent could touch the hearts of so many? Many lessons will be learned and readers will be inclined to look into their own hearts and see where their own talents lie. This is a delightfully humorous and imaginative tale that children of all ages will not only enjoy, but will be one of their favorites for years to come.""

Mark Simon Smith, Children’s Book Author Author Diane Mae Robinson has done it again. Her first book was a captivating, light-hearted,  and whimsical fantasy romp that immediately grabs the young reader's attention and holds it  tight and the second is no different. The colorful descriptions and downright silly goofiness set  these stories apart. I can't imagine the reader the wouldn't be interested in these books.

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. This was the first time I’d read about Princess Petra but the beginning of the book has a prologue that gave background information and explained how Princess Petra became a knight; so, although I hadn’t read the first book, I had no problem getting caught up. What an adventure! This would be a fun book to read aloud to children. The descriptions of all of the characters are colorful and would be good for helping children to use their imaginations. I especially liked the cute names of the characters and kingdoms. There are also some age appropriate lessons in this book. Princess Petra is her own person. She does what she believes to be the right thing and doesn’t worry about what others think. She doesn’t want to be a princess, she wants to be a knight. When she goes to Talent School, she doesn’t pick a course that would be expected of a princess, she picks one that interests her even though she’s discouraged from doing so. On the other hand, her friend, who is a prince, decides he wants to learn to knit. Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is a great book!

Sir Princess Petra and her motley crew's antics will surely delight the adventurous spirit in all who dream of dragons and witches and not so run-of-the-mill princesses! A delight to read aloud!

Petra Longstride, princess of Pen Pieyu, the kingdom’s only princess knight (and the only actual knight), is angry. Her father, King Longstride, has made a new rule in the Royal Rulebook, one which states that all princesses in the Kingdom must go to a Talent School and get a certificate. Why can’t Petra’s parents just let her be a knightly princess, instead of a girly princess? Instead she has to go to talent school and figure out what talent she has. This is a great sequel to “Sir Princess Petra!” There is action, romance (that Petra hates – apparently some guy is supposed to marry her, and he doesn’t want to, and Petra doesn’t want to marry him, so they call the thing off), excitement, burning buildings (Snarls, Petra’s friend and trusty steed, is a dragon…), and a lot of fun! I like the character of King Asterman, the guy who runs the Talent School. I really enjoyed the dialogue in the book. It made it fun to read. I love the character of Princess Petra! I like that she doesn’t want to be the girly princess! The pencil sketch illustrations throughout the book are great and gives the reader an idea of what the characters look like. I also LOVED the talent Princess Petra finds out she has! The reading level is good for young advanced readers if you are looking for a god book for one. Ms. Robinson’s writing style makes this adventure fun and gets you into the characters. I am already looking forward to the next book! *NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

Here begins the tale of Petra on the Ninth day of the Ninth month of her Ninth year. She announces to her parents, the king and queen of Pen Pieyu that she wants to be a knight. They consult the royal rule book and much to her parents dismay, they cannot find a reason that Petra cannot be a knight. But knighthood doesn't come easy, just because you are a princess. Petra must face one of three challenges, like every other knight to prove her mettle. She must capture a croc, silence a dragon or eat a room full of raw onions. Petra ponders and decides on the dragon. Off she goes outfitted in kitchen pots and pans for she is too small for knightly armour. Petra learns the tongue in fact may be mightier than the sword, or in her case more of a kitchen knife. She silences the dragon, not with knives but with a kind deed and a new friendship is formed. She returns to the castle and decides that the dragon will become her royal steed, but things don't come so easily. Petra must overcome a nasty bogwitch, outwit Prince Nastybun and brave Hobble Wobble creek to get her royal steed home. How does she do it, well you will just have to read the book, he he. This was a delightful read, with a wonderfully strong female who isn't afraid to shirk the princess stereotypes to become a knight. She is thoughtful and helpful and always willing to find a better way. I love the innocence of her character and the message she portrays through her actions. The language and reading level are great for a read loud or for children just approaching independent reading of chapter books. The simple pencil illustrations were excellent. They made me fall in love with Petra and her kingdom from the moment I opened the book. I am thoroughly looking forward to the next book. NB I was provided the first book in the series in preparation for an upcoming blog tour in exchange for an honest review

King Longstride has decided that Sir Princess Petra must go to Talent School to gain a princess Talent or risk losing her knighthood. She chooses to go to Writing School, which is about as un-princess as she can get. On her way home to Pen Pieyu, She finds out about a new knight and makes a bunch of new friends. The title screams “Girly”, but even though I am a boy, I liked it. 2016 Rubric Readability- 5: The story was easy follow and quite enjoyable. I really loved the poem and Nana Longstride’s Story. Age Appropriate – 5: I think this would a be a great book for early chapter readers and it would make a great bedtime story for pre-school kids. Illustrations- 5: These pencil sketches were filled with amazing detail and shading and really made the story much better. Bonus Points: 3 Ability to Hold Interest. -5: I didn’t even want to put the book down long enough to eat. Did I Like It?- 5: Yes, it is a funny, witty and clever story. I read a review that said it was about girl power, but I don’t think so. I think it is a story about girls and boys being who they are and showing where they are strong. Princes Petra has to be pretty sure about herself to want to be something other than what everyone expects her to be and Prince Duce has to be pretty sure about himself to go to talent school and learn a princess talent like crocheting. When I was younger I crocheted all the time. Rating: 5.6 /5

Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is book two in the Pen Pieyu Adventures and is about a nine year old princess who has worked to become a knight of her kingdom despite the fact that her more conservative parents would rather her be a “proper” princess. In this story the King has written a rule that in order to keep her knighthood she must journey to Talent School and get a certificate in a proper princess talent. She and her royal steed, the dragon Snarls, set off for Talent School and along the way meet Prince Duce Crablips who has made it his mission to stop her from reaching Talent School. When it is discovered that it is all misunderstanding, fun adventures ensue with the trio going to Talent school and then adventuring their way home again meeting new friends, taking on new challenges and finding out new secrets. It is simply a delightful read. For starters the artwork on and in the book is simply gorgeous. The story illustrations are pencil sketches with remarkable detail. My son simply gushed about it. He falls asleep with a sketch book in his hands most nights, however in his sketches, that he has made since reading this and the next book, I can see major inspiration in his use of shading and line details from the art in the book. It takes a lot to impress my young man when comes to art. I have to agree with him in this case. Petra and her friends come alive through the artwork. Smiles abound in this infectious tale where the food of choice for most of the characters seems to be onions as a hand fruit, cooked in many different ways or simply juiced into a cocktail. The names in this series are quite wonderful. Places like the bogs of Mesoggie and The Kingdom of Lost Donkeys, where the donkeys do indeed seem to have disappeared and names Like Seymour Forest the ganute who does actually live in vast forest and Letgo the crocodile. I did also enjoy the themes of friendship, teamwork and belief in oneself that runs throughout the story. The book opens with a quick synopsis of book 1 which is great, because that was the one book I wasn’t able to get a copy of for this review. I think it is a wonderful tool for young readers whose comprehension skills are as yet undeveloped to help them back into a world they may read about sometime ago. This is a fabulous story about who you are and not letting stereotypes define who you could be. 5 stars I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Story Within a Story I have given a well-deserved five stars to Diane Mae Robinson’s delightful tale Sir Princess Petra’s Talent. But if I had the good fortune to live in her uniquely nutty fantasy world I would be allowed to give it the praise it truly deserves: five onions, fresh from the Royal Onion Room. I’ve read all the wonderful reviews previously written for this series, The Pen Pieyu Adventures. Clearly, the author has a deft hand when it comes to exploiting the imagination. Within only a couple of pages I became a citizen of her world.  As other reviews have pointed out, the plot twists are relentless, each one producing a sweetly bizarre new character, and they are characters who subtly demonstrate that gender is of no matter when it comes to bravery and talent. After all, knights wear pink, don’t they? A poem about jam made me chuckle, but what almost took my breath away was the story within the story read to the court by Sir Princess Petra, a story created with the Talent of the book’s title: writer.  I leave you to read it for yourselves. I want to mention that I chose to read this tale out of nostalgia for the days when my daughters were young and I read to them nightly. Shortly after I began reading Robinson’s book on a quiet Saturday morning, I began reading aloud, to me and myself. I wish I could have shared this book with my children.

Princess stereotypes are gloriously debunked in this book about a royal who dares to be herself. Princess Petra will charm and inspire youngsters as she fearlessly outwits those who would thwart her progress in achieving her own goals, all the while helping others realize their own dreams.  Author Diane Mae Robinson's second book in the Pen Pieyu Adventures is a delightful read and one that is sure to engage and enthrall young readers.  Sir Princess Petra's Talent is recommended for home and school libraries and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

This time I am very glad to speak about a children’s book. This work is suitable for children aged 7-12 years. That is a fairy tale enriched with magical words. Its title is Sir Princess Petra’s Talent’s and its author is Diane Mae Robinson, an established and rewarded writer of Children’s books and a writing instructor at the Creative Writing Institute. The book I am reviewing is the second episode of The Pen Piery Adventures, a series set in the reign inhabited by the little, brave Princess Petra, her parents, namely the king and his queen and a royal council that supervises Petra’s friends while they try to follow the rules established by the royal book to became royal knights. The book opens with the synopsis of the first episode, where the little, nine years Petra gets the title of royal knight to have hushed the howling dragon Snarls. The latter becomes a friend of Petra, but in the book two, the parents of Petra expect their beloved princess to behave as a true Princess and not only as a royal knight. The king, hence, orders Petra to attend the Talent School to gain a talent certificate. If she refuses this proposal, she will be turned into a frog! Naturally, Petra accepts to attend the School. In this new experience, the Princess is accompanied by her friends Snarls and Prince Duce Crablips of the Kingdom of Crablips. But which will be the talent that Petra will choose at the Talent School? The answer is in the book that I want to define a graceful masterpiece of the children’s literature. Many readers or aspiring authors believe that writing a children’s book is easier that writing a fiction for young adults. Indeed, in order to fit style of writing for little readers, a writer must have high skills in creative writing. Thanks to her excellent writing skills, Diane Mae Robinson has been capable to create a perfect story for children. Sir Princess Petra Talent’s is well written and created by using the proper words, sentences and adjectives, the sequences of words build a sort of poetry and this style makes the story more and more poetic and enchanting. This style emerges during each chapter of the book. Moreover, this work contains a high educational purpose because it teaches children to develop their talent and abilities and overcome the several obstacles imposed by life. This tale teaches, above all, to face problems in a fun way. The adventures of Petra and her friends are, indeed, recounted with a humoristic tone and with words capable to lighten every difficult. But not only, Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is also a book about the most important ethical values in life, namely sense of friendship, respect for other people and for nature, for the sky and the going of the seasons. This book is also enriched with drawings describing the story written by Diane Mae Robinson. The writing of the author seems to paint and shape the same pictures of this fairy tale. To tell the truth, I read this book with the mood of a child and I remained happily charmed. I am sure readers will have the same opinion and much more!

Sir Princess Petra's Talent is the second book in The Pen Pieyu Adventures series.  Although I had not read the first book in the series, the beginning of the second book has a prologue that gave background information and explained how Princess Petra became a knight; so, I had no problem getting caught up and didn’t feel lost. Petra is a strong role model for young girls. In Sir Princess Petra’s Talent, Petra is being sent to talent school by her parents, the king and queen.  She is not happy about this, but parents will be happy to know she behaves appropriately and in the end, she learns a new talent that benefits the entire Pen Peiyu kingdom.   Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is a fantasy, adventure children’s chapter book with moral, values of kindness, acceptance of other, believing in yourself and just enough humor to entertain the young ones.  I loved the sketches as they give you an idea of what the characters look like.  You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.

And the adventure continues.... I am in love with this book series! This book could have been written for my granddaughter, so is always trying to do the things her brother does.I love that's the Princess isn't a prissy girl but wants the chance to do ANYTHING. Including going back to school to find/learn a talent. It was a grand adventure that any child would love to read about imagining it was them on the quest. The story was fast-paced, full of humor, and even had a message tucked in for good measure. I loved the whimsical illustrations, and Snarks the Dragon is one of my favorite characters. I wish this book had been around when my kids were little. Make that when I was little ;-)

This is the second book in The Pen Pieyu adventure series. The author provides a synopsis of Book One to get all readers up to speed though the book can stand on its own. Sir Princess Petra is no ordinary princess; she is spirited, stubborn, sensitive, and devoted to her friends and subjects. In the last book, the reader met a nine year old girl who was determined to become the first knight in her magical kingdom. Petra achieved knighthood by slaying the howling dragon named Snarls in a series of adventures; he later becomes her friend and master connoisseur in the palace kitchen. At the beginning of Book Two, the king and queen summon Petra informing her that she must go away to the Land of Lost Donkeys to attend training in a Talent School in order to become a “proper princess.” This does not sit well with Petra, but she is an obedient daughter and loyal subject and so she acquiesces to her parents’ request. On her journey she meets Prince Duce Crablips who is secretly betrothed to her, but who would really like to go to school to learn how to crochet. The selection of talents available to Petra at the school are all unappealing, sewing, etiquette and knitting are not her cup of tea. Together with Snarls and Prince Duce, they eventually find a satisfactory course and complete certificates before being forced to make a quick exit. The three compatriots become embroiled in an adventure with the ganutes on their way home to the kingdom. Petra assists all her friends in employing their new found talents; Pen Pieyu attains subjects with new talents in the process. Petra enthralls her parents and her subjects with her new abilities, which I suspect might be the start of a new adventure. This series is the perfect chapter book for new or reluctant readers. Because I write picture books, I have a definite preference for illustration in children’s books; the black and white pencil drawings in this book are a definite enhancement to the plot. The short length of the chapters are perfect for serial read alouds in the classroom or multiple bedtime stories. Petra is a strong role model for encouraging a young girl’s potential. Her strength of character along with the other rich and humorous characters extend the book’s appeal to boys as well. There is humor, adventure, magic, fantasy and just enough silliness to appeal to children and parents of children from early elementary through middle grades. I anticipate a lot more exciting adventures and lessons in store for Petra’s fans as she matures. Another good chapter book by award-winning author, Diane Mae Robinson.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Sir Princess Petra's Talent is the second volume in Diane Mae Robinson's fantasy/adventure series, The Pen Pieyu Adventures. While it is the second volume, Robinson adds enough background information to allow this tale to stand on its own. Petra's father, King Longstride, offered her anything she wished for her ninth birthday, and Petra asked to be made a knight of the realm. She fulfilled one of the three conditions necessary for becoming a royal knight and hushed the howling dragon. Petra discovered that Snarls, the dragon, had his tail stuck under some rocks, which was why he was howling. She helped him out, earned her title, Sir Princess Petra, and made a good friend and companion in the dragon Snarls. Now her father has issued a new decree via the royal rule book, which states that all Princess Knights must attend Talent School before they turn 10 years old. Petra is dismayed by this edict as all the talents the school offers are for "proper princess" stuff and not the skills she really needs to be a knight. Diane Mae Robinson's fantasy adventure tale, Sir Princess Petra's Talent, is quite simply wonderful. It lets kids know that their interests don't have to be dictated by their gender. It's okay to hate girly stuff and frilly dresses if you're a girl or to love crochet and crafting if you're a boy. Then there are the talents like reading and learning which are less gender-specific. The message that Sir Princess Petra's Talent brings is that those skills are just as important, if not more so, than traditional boy/girl skills. Can Petra solves her problem with diplomacy, tact, and skill? Young readers will learn that, even in the tightest spots, if you give it enough thought, you can often turn a challenging situation into one with a great outcome. These are important messages for kids to hear, especially when they hear it in the form of an exciting and funny adventure with a fabulous Princess Knight and a Prince who crochets and wears pink.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Sir Princess Petra's Talent: The Pen Pieyu Adventures by Diane Mae Robinson is an adventure story that will take children on a ride of fantasy, whimsy, and imagination. The King and Queen of Pen Pieyu have a daughter, Princess Petra. Instead of behaving like a princess, she likes to show people that she is a noble knight. The rules in the Kingdom change and that requires the princess to attend Talent School. Though unhappy over her father's decision, Petra agrees to go. The messages of kindness and understanding dominate the evil forces in the story. What will Petra discover about herself in Talent School? It is an adventure story filled with a lot of action, humor, and suspense. It is a theme that gives message about understanding, kindness and acceptance. The main character, Petra, is endearing and the other characters in the story are also imaginative and interesting. The pencil sketches in the story give life to the characters and the scenes. It is a book that should be kept in school libraries and also in one's personal collection. The fast paced story and the characters evoke a kind of magical feeling within readers, along with the beautiful sketches that give them personality.  The twists and turns and the sub-plots make the story intriguing and will keep young readers glued to the book till the very end. The messages given out in the story makes it more appealing.

Reviewed by Dr. Oliva Dsouza for Readers' Favorite Sir Princess Petra would rather be a knight in her father's Kingdom of Pen Pieyu than go to Talent School and learn a new skill that is more becoming of a princess. But the King and the Queen put their feet down on this issue. Sir Princess Petra is almost turned into a frog by the royal magician before she agrees (reluctantly) to go and earn her talent certificate at the school. Accompanied by her dragon, Snarls, she sets off on an adventure, gaining new friends and allies along the way. This journey also turns out to be a means of self discovery for Sir Princess Petra. Does she really earn her talent certificate from the Talent School? Sir Princess Petra's Talent by Diane Mae Robinson is an exciting, delightful, and sweet story about an endearing princess, who is also the only Knight of her father's kingdom. The story teaches fantastic lessons about friendship, honor, self-worth, and discovering your own talents. Every child deserves to read this book. The lessons are worth it. The author has used her imagination to her creative best and managed to weave an extremely engaging story. This book is guaranteed to keep your little one glued to the story and out of your hair when you really need a break. Sir Princess Petra's antics are cute, hilarious, and heartwarming. She manages to steal your heart completely. Does she come into her own and find her real talent? Will she be able to impress her folks with her talent? Read on and your kid will want you to read it all over again for him/her.

Reviewed by Julia Hopkinson for Readers' Favorite Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is the second installment in Diane Mae Robinson’s illustrated series, The Pen Pieyu Adventures. This book includes a synopsis of the first book, in which Princess Petra became Pen Pieyu’s only knight so far - much to the dismay of her mother and father, the King and Queen - and obtained a pet dragon with a penchant for barbecue. The new tale describes the King’s attempt to thwart Petra’s knightliness by requiring her to acquire a Princess-like talent, and Petra’s own attempts to avoid learning “sissy princess stuff”, like crochet or knitting. Through the book, she and Snarls the dragon have several adventures, meet many new friends, and find the perfect opportunity to demonstrate their own talents. Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is a pleasant read and great fun for kids; particularly, I imagine, for little girls, for whom chasing ganutes, befriending witches, and planning duels would be a hoot. The story contains some very funny bits, even for adults, and very lively characters with great names - Duce Crablips, Norton Nastybun, Letgo the crocodile! The book is a charming adventure with some witty lines and funny characters. I loved the character of Snarls, and Bograt’s rumours spread for her own gain and amusement. There is a lot of warmth in Diane Mae Robinson’s book which children and adults alike will enjoy.

Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite Talent School? Why on earth should a princess knight have to go to talent school? In Sir Princess Petra’s Talent by Diane Mae Robinson, Princess Petra is commanded by the Royal Rule Book to attend Talent School and complete a certification of a proper princess talent before the age of ten. In the event that she did not complete talent school by age ten, then the royal magician would turn her into a frog and she would live in the bogs for five years. Having hushed the howling dragon in the Forest of Doom, Princess Petra is not happy about pursuing a proper princess talent, telling her father that it is sissy princess stuff. The tale that unfolds as Princess Petra, accompanied by Prince Duce Crablips, starts on her journey to Talent School and the discovery of her proper princess talent brings the reader to a surprise ending. What is Princess Petra’s talent? The second book in the Pen Pieyu Adventures, Sir Princess Petra’s Talent continues a series of tales in the kingdom of Pen Pieyu that is peppered with the unique humor of Diane Mae Robinson. This is a fun book that sends a reluctant Sir Princess Petra on a quest to seek her proper princess talent. The reluctance is soon forgotten, as is often the case with 9-year-olds, and the hilarious adventure leads to a wonderful lesson about discovering our special skills and talents. Humorous, adventurous and revealing, Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is a delightful and meaningful continuation of an already wonderfully imaginative series.

This is my first experience with Sir Princess Petra, and I only wish my daughter was young enough to enjoy this book! I would recommend this book for about second to third grade (good for parent to read to younger children). I felt like I was reading about a girl so similar to my daughter it was scary! My daughter was a tomboy, and that seems to be who Sir Princess Petra is as well--much to the chagrin of her parents. Although I had not read the first book in the series, I had no problem jumping right in on the action. I didn't miss a beat, and the story was fun and thrilling. It was nice to see a princess who didn't care much about a princess. I have grown quite weary of the "Dinsey princesses" and the "girly girl" books, and this is just what girls need in this day and age. It's okay to be who you really are, and this book emphasizes that point to a tee. The characters are well-developed, and the author could easily write more in this adventure series. And just so you know, there is a somewhat nontraditional prince as well. No spoilers, but it was a delightful character addition. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

I was given a copy for an honest review. This book was a fun adventure to read. Princess Petra not only goes to learn a Talent, but she makes unexpected friends along the way. Everything fit together nicely too, which I enjoyed. The artwork is cute and whimsical. One of my favorite characters is Snarls, a dragon who loves to cook. (How can you not love a dragon that loves cooking?) This is a book to read and enjoy. And read again.
