Robinson’s multi-award winning books, ‘Sir Princess Petra', and the second book in the series, 'Sir Princess Petra's Talent', teach children valuable life lessons through engaging fiction

[September 16, 2014, St. Paul, Alberta, Canada] Award winning Canadian author Diane Mae Robinson's latest children's books, 'Sir Princess Petra' and 'Sir Princess Petra's Talent' have taken two more awards for her highly praised works in The Pen Pieyu Adventures series.

'Sir Princess Petra', the first book in the series, took the First Place Award for children's books in the 2013 Sharp Writ Book Awards. 'Sir Princess Petra's Talent', the second book in the series, took the Bronze Medal in the 2014 Reader's Favorite International Book Awards in the grades 4 to 6 category.

"I am pleased and honored," Robinson stated, "that my fantasy/adventure series is being recognized at the international level.  It is a very rewarding experience for an author.”

Robinson 's highly praised, multi-award winning children’s book, ‘Sir Princess Petra’, the first in the Pen Pieyu series, is written in the tradition of C. S. Lewis and is reminiscent of ‘Shrek’. Reviewers have labeled the award winning book a ‘fantasy adventure that is sure to become a timeless classic.’

'Sir Princess Petra' took an Honorable Mention award in the 2013 Readers' Favorite International Awards for Children Grade K - 3rd. Robinson was also honored with two major awards for the book. She was awarded the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Emerging Artists Award for Children’s Book Author and took 2nd place in the Purple Dragonfly Book awards for Children’s Chapter Book.

'Sir Princess Petra's Talent' has garnered multiple 5 star reviews and even more praise from Midwest Book Review and Readers Favorite.

Robinson is currently at work on the third book in the series, 'Sir Princess Petra's Mission'. She is also writing an easy-to-understand grammar book for elementary children, 'Grammar for Kids and Dragons'. The book deals with elementary grades grammar lessons in a humorous medieval tone.

Robinson uses the dragon books concept as the background to teaching young people traditional values. Ms. Robinson's highly praised work demonstrates that dragon books can be something much more than fantasy tales.
