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?
I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.
This was the first time I’d read about Princess Petra but the beginning of the book has a prologue that gave background information and explained how Princess Petra became a knight; so, although I hadn’t read the first book, I had no problem getting caught up.
What an adventure! This would be a fun book to read aloud to children. The descriptions of all of the characters are colorful and would be good for helping children to use their imaginations. I especially liked the cute names of the characters and kingdoms.
There are also some age appropriate lessons in this book. Princess Petra is her own person. She does what she believes to be the right thing and doesn’t worry about what others think. She doesn’t want to be a princess, she wants to be a knight. When she goes to Talent School, she doesn’t pick a course that would be expected of a princess, she picks one that interests her even though she’s discouraged from doing so. On the other hand, her friend, who is a prince, decides he wants to learn to knit.
