Book two: Sir Princess Petra’s Talent synopsis

Sir Princess Petra has already proven she is a kind and noble knight. This, however, does not please the king and queen – they want her to behave like a princess and forget this silly knight nonsense of hers!

But when the king writes a new rule in the royal rule book that requires her to attend Talent School and acquire a princess talent certificate or suffer the spell of the royal magician, Petra, reluctantly, agrees to go.

But who could have guessed what Sir Princess Petra’s Talent would be?

REVIEW:  Princess Petra is a charming and fun adventure with a fascinating princess. Having recently taught a course on fairy tales as well as read the popular, Ella Enchanted, I’ve been drawn to princesses who find adventure and show their personality.  Princess Petra certainly gives the reader that spunk and excitement when creating her own path at Talent School.  Even more so, I enjoyed the details like almost Dickensian names, the royal magician, plot twists, along with the adventure.

Many young readers, boys and girls, would be happy to jump into Robinson’s world and follow the path of Princess Petra.  The illustrations really emphasize the character of Petra as well as the other characters; I loved the hand drawn sketches!  Without giving away plot surprises, I was thrilled to see Petra embrace her talent, and I think many parents and teachers will, too.

This is a delightful, charming tale for readers who love a spirited character – I recommend it!

Book one: Sir Princess Petra synopsis

Princess Petra’s unusual birthday request sends the royal court into a frenzy,

but when she agrees to undertake a knight’s quest they can’t stop her. Armed with a cake knife and outfitted in the best royal pots and pans, Petra sets off to face a dragon and win her real armor before encountering a bog witch, and an army of the kingdom’s worst enemies.

 Will Petra’s kindness and acceptance prove to be more valuable  than weapons and armor?

  4. “Dickensian names” – great point! It just goes with the feel of the book, doesn’t it? And Petra certainly is a “spirited character”. Loved reading your review!

    • “Dickensian names”– I love that comment. I really enjoy naming my characters. In fact, they can’t even start to audition for a part in the book until they have that perfect name.
