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?
I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
I had read the second book in the Pen Pieyu Adventures, Sir Princess Petra’s Talent, and enjoyed reading about Sir Princess Petra’s adventures so I was happy to read Sir Princess Petra’s Mission to see what other adventures she would find. At the beginning of the book, a synopsis of the first two books is given so even if you don’t read them, you’ll still know what is going on.
This time, her father sends her on a mission and if she fails, she’ll lose her knighthood. She sets out with her friends and, of course, they have a great adventure. Diane Mae Robinson does a great job describing the characters as well as the scenery. There are also colorful pictures but her descriptions will encourage children to use their imaginations.
Sir Princess Petra is a character that children can look up to. She does what she is ordered to do because she is a knight, but she won’t give up her honor. She knows what is right and she will stick to it even if it’s going to mean that she’ll lose her knighthood.
Sir Princess Petra’s Mission is a fun book for children to read or it would be a good book to read aloud. I think it and the other Pen Pieyu Adventures are stories children will enjoy reading over and over.
I received an ecopy from the author of book #1 shortly before the review on book #3 was due to go live so I thought I’d add that review here:
‘I have thought hard and for many passing moons. Jewels, frocks of lace, and princess games have become boring. The thing I want the most…’ Petra hesitated and bit on her lip. ‘I want to be a royal knight.’
Princess Petra’s unusual birthday request sends the 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?
Sir Princess Petra is the first of The Pen Pieyu Adventures and it’s my favorite, maybe because I’d already read the next two books and I learned in this one how she became friends with the dragon, Snarls, and the bog witch, Bograt. Such a fun book to read!
To the dismay of her parents, Princess Petra wants to be a knight but she has to perform a task first. Just the fact that she is able to convince her parents that she has the right to become a knight shows what courage Princess Petra has.
On her adventures, she learns that you don’t have to be mean and nasty to be a brave knight. She also turns potential enemies into friend. She is a special princess, for sure.
I definitely recommend Sir Princess Petra and the other Pen Pieyu Adventures for children of all ages.
