Robinson’s multi-award winning books, ‘Sir Princess Petra', and the second book in 
the series, 'Sir Princess Petra's Talent', teach children valuable life lessons 
through engaging fiction.   April 18, 2015.
Award winning children's book author Diane Mae Robinson 
has announced that 'Sir Princess Petra's Talent' has been selected to receive the Children's 
Literary Classics Seal of Approval.  The CLC Seal of Approval is a designation reserved for
 those books which uphold the rigorous criteria set forth by the Children's Literary 
Classics review committee, a team comprised of individuals with backgrounds in 
publishing, editing, writing, illustration and graphic design. CLC is an organization 
dedicated to promoting excellence in literature with the goal to help readers 
select the finest books available.

"Receiving a Seal of Approval from Children’s Literary Classics is an incredible honor," 
Robinson stated.

This is the 6th award for the multi-award winning children’s chapter book series, 
'The Pen Pieyu Adventures'. 'Sir Princess Petra', the first book in the series, took the
 First Place Award for children's books in the 2013 Sharp Writ Book Awards.
 'Sir Princess Petra's Talent', the second book in the series, took the Bronze 
Medal in the 2014 Reader's Favorite International Book Awards in the grades 
4 to 6 category.

Robinson 's highly praised, multi-award winning children’s book, ‘Sir Princess Petra’, 
the first in The Pen Pieyu Adventures series, has been labeled by reviewers as ‘a fantasy 
adventure that is sure to become a timeless classic.’ The Pen Pieyu Adventure series 
is written in the tradition of C. S. Lewis and is reminiscent of ‘Shrek’.

'Sir Princess Petra' took an Honorable Mention award in the 2013 Readers' Favorite 
International Awards for Children Grade K - 3rd. Robinson was also honored with 
two major awards for the book. She was awarded the Lieutenant Governor of 
Alberta Emerging Artists Award for Children’s Book Author and took 2nd 
place in the Purple Dragonfly Book awards for Children’s Chapter Book.

'Sir Princess Petra' has garnered multiple 5 star reviews and high praise from reviewers:

“A maverick fantasy, packed with plot twists and turns, brilliant flashes of humor, 
and originality.” James A. Cox, Editor-in-chief, Midwest Book Review

“Sometimes a kids book comes along that turns convention on its ear. This is one
 such book.” John L. Hoh Jr., Book Ideas. com

“Distinctly quirky and uniquely interesting--I really feel this book is a gem.” 
Renee Cormier, Mother Daughter Book Reviews

“A delightfully imaginative read, a tale that invites readers on a fearless journey 
towards friendship and self-discovery.” The University of Manitoba Book Review

y its humor.” Stephanie Dagg, Readers’ Favorite

“Diane Mae Robinson has done it again—captivating, light-hearted, a 
whimsical fantasy.” Mark Simon Smith, Children’s Book Author

 people traditional values. Ms. Robinson's highly praised work demonstrates 
that dragon books can be something much more than fantasy tales.

the series, 'Sir Princess Petra’s Mission – The Pen Pieyu Adventures', 
is scheduled for release in the fall of 2015.
