About the Book:
Princess Petra was no ordinary princess. Nope, she didn't like girly things at all. What she wanted was to become a knight. Well, the chance for a girl to become a knight was slim but within her grasp. Her father allows her to try by fighting a dragon named Snarls to stop him from howling at the moon, keeping them all up at night.
Where other knights have failed, Petra succeeds. She shows the reader that we don't have to fight someone in order to win. Sometimes just treating someone with respect by listening to what they have to say and then coming up with an agreeable solution is enough.
Given the fact that Petra comes across some interestingly strange new friends, she shows the reader how to respect and appreciate an individuals uniqueness. Together, they start a new wave of acceptance in her father's kingdom.
Ms. Robinson has created an interesting and delightful tale about acceptance and understanding. Her characters are fun and children will enjoy the spunkyness of Petra. She shows common sense and reason, unlike her father who would rather use brute strength and malice to solve problems. Children will see how problems can be solved in different ways.
Children 7 and up will love this unique 68 page chapter book. Children will be anxiously awaiting the other books in The Pen Pieyu Adventure series, wondering what Petra will be up to next.
