The Buzz About the Book
“Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is precisely everything an early middle grade book should be with a multi-dimensional main character who is a great role model for young girls; a great supporting cast of unique and quirky characters; a plot largely driven through clever dialogue amongst the characters and involving much adventure and folly; and unexpected turns and twists that will leave parents and their children laughing out loud. I find that both books in The Pen Pieyu Adventure series lend themselves particularly well to being read aloud and I recommend both books to families with children aged 5 years and older.” ~ Renee @ Mother Daughter Book Reviews
“The illustrations capture so beautifully the indomitable spirit of Sir Princess Petra. And the characters she meets throughout the book are hilarious in prose, but the illustrations take them to another level altogether!” ~ Tina @ Mommynificent
“There are many oddball characters, some silly situations, and a pair of determined parents. Attempts to control a strong-headed, yet kind and caring almost ten-year-old royal brings about goofy humor kids will like. Petra is a great role model for girls. She is determined to be herself, even if that means knocking down the kingdom’s patriarchal system and displease her equally determined parents.” ~ Sue @ Kid Lit Reviews
“This is a delightful, charming tale for readers who love a spirited character – I recommend it!” ~ Brittany @ Tales of a Bookworm
“I liked this book because it has a great story line and a great message about believing in yourself. Petra proves that she and all girls can be daring, adventurous and brave. I think Petra was a great character and I liked Snarls (the dragon) even better because he had good sense and dragons are just cool.” ~ Erik @ This Kid Reviews Books
