 Sir Princess Petra’s Mission: The Pen Pieyu Adventures by Diane Mae Robinson

Book Excellence Book Award Winner
Children’s Fiction   

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, the king.

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?

The Adventures of Lovable Lobo: Selfies in the Wild - Book Review

  • The Adventures of Lovable Lobo: Selfies in the Wild
  • Written and illustrated by C.L. Murphy
  • Publisher: Peanut Butter Prose (August 1, 2016)
  • Publication Date: August 1, 2016
  • ASIN: B01HC76S5O

About The Book
Lobo and his sidekick raven find a trail camera in their neck of the woods, and it attracts the attention of forest friends. Images captured have never been sillier or more candid. Just as their wild dispositions are exposed, the photo shoot comes to an unexpected end and they're all left wondering why. The reason may be obvious.  

What I Thought
 Selfies in the Wild is a TOTALLY FUN BOOK! Lobo, the wolf pup, and his buddies discover a trail camera, and when they realize that the trail cam captures pictures of them (without actually “capturing” them), they come up with some hilarious star-studded poses that are wonderfully illustrated.  There’s lots of clever words too; in Lobo’s world the characters are glutton-free and have feet that are pawsitively stinky. As the characters in this book state: “Let’s make a good impression”, that is certainly what C.L. Murphy did by writing and illustrating this book.
C.L. Murphy’s book are always fantastic, and Selfies in the Wild is the latest book in the author’s string of well written and delightful illustrated books. The author has an incredible imaginative way with words and art that captures the hearts of children and adults alike. This book had me chuckling throughout.  Lobo and friends always make life an adventure–I love that about these books.
