‘Sir Princess Petra’s Talent’ Wins Coveted Purple Dragonfly Book Award 

   CHANDLER, AZ (June, 2015) – The judges of the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards contest, which recognizes excellence in children’s literature, have spoken, and Sir Princess Petra’s Talent by Diane Mae Robinson, won Honorable Mention  in the Chapter Books category.
                “Winning any place in the Purple Dragonfly Contest is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the Dragonfly Book Awards, a minimum score is required before a First or Second place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the sole entry in a category,” explains Linda F. Radke, president of Five Star Publications, the sponsor of the Dragonfly Book Awards. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”
                Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is a book about finding one’s passion in life, even when the odds are against you. It retails for $9.99 U.S. and can be purchased at: Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Abe Books and many other online book stores.
