WILMINGTON, NC, June 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Award winning Canadian author Diane Robinson 's highly praised, multi-award winning children's book, 'Sir Princess Petra', the first in the Pen Pieyu series, features surprising plot twists and turns, brilliant flashes of humor, zany characters and is rooted in timeless values that shine through the charismatic main character. It 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 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.
The second book in the series, 'Sir Princess Petra's Talent' has already received a number of very favorable reviews. The book recently garnered 5 more 5 star reviews and even more praise from Midwest Book Review and Readers Favorite.
"Writing and creating this fantasy series has been a fun adventure," stated Robinson. "Petra is a spunky character who teaches children about kindness, accepting others for who they are, and believing in yourself. My grammar book is written in the same essence as this series."
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.
While dragon books are one of the most popular segments of fantasy fiction and children's books in today's marketplace, in these fantasy fiction books, 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 dragon books.
