Today I get to be part of a blog tour for a book I have
been looking forward to - the next book in The Pen Pieyu Adventures -
Sir Princess Petra's Talent! The blog tour was organized by the
Marvelous Ms. Morris of Kid Lit Reviews (click HERE). What's more exciting is that I get to
give away a copy of the new Princss Petra book to one lucky reader! WOO! Read to
the end to figure out how to enter!

I loved the character of Princess Petra, the princess who
didn't want to be "princessy"
but wanted to be a knight. I really liked the writing style of Ms. Robinson too.
I was very happy to hear Ms. Robinson wrote a second book in the
Princess Petra's Talent - Book 2 in The Pen Pieyu Adventures
by Diane Mae Robinson (Author)
92 pages - ages 7+
Published by Tate Publishing on September 24,
Petra Longstride, princess of Pen Pieyu, the kingdom's
only princess knight (and the only actual knight), is angry. Her father, King

steed, is a dragon...), and a lot of fun! I like the character of King
Ampersand, 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! Her parents want her to be like

model) 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!
