Once in an royal era, along comes a truly noble story that is charming and majestic, while embracing timeless values through a deeper message.

An honorable and worthy message about believing in yourself, the acceptance of others, and the grace of kindness. This is that story.
Princess Petra’s unusual birthday request to become a royal knight sends the royal court into a frenzy. But when she agrees to undertake a knight’s quest, not even the royal rule book, with its list of outrageous knight deeds, can dissuade her.

Armed with a cake knife and a suit of the best royal pots and pans, Petra chooses to hush the howling dragon, Snarls, in the Forest of Doom and win her real armour. Will Petra’s kindness and acceptance of others prove to be more valuable than weapons and armour?
Petra Longstride is an honorable and charismatic main character who will enchant the reader and lead them on a wonderful, delightfully funny adventure.



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?


Sir Princess Petra has already attained her Knighthood in the Kingdom of Pen Pieyu and now has a Writing 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 tries to turn her into a real princess once and for all. Will the king finally succeed with this newly written, ridiculous mission for Petra?

Embracing Timeless Values

Diane Mae Robinson lives with her husband, Allen, in a small hilltop castle overlooking a magical forest. In this forest, all the characters and creatures of her books dwell and audition for parts. Diane has a journalism diploma from the Schools of Montreal and an advanced diploma from the Institute of Children’s Literature in Connecticut. She is also a visual artist in sculpture and fine arts, and teaches watercolor and acrylic art to children. Her mission in life is to inspire children in the arts and help them discover their potential.

Diane believes that by instilling kindness, understanding, and respect in our children, they will be able to make their difficult situations easier and accomplish what they set out to do in a better way.

"What a wonderful story. You don’t get many books that can teach qualities such as respect, friendship, and trust. This book does that simply by showing through a lovely story. The author has a great gift at story telling.” - Ian S. Rutter, Author, The Faeries of Birchover Wood

Amazingly Fresh - Charmingly Funny 

Diane knows that young children learn best when engaged fully with a story. 'Sir Princess Petra' is filled with surprising plot twists, unexpected obstacles and unusual problems, all wrapped around a tightly written core of cutting edge originality and brilliant bursts of humor.

The storyline is charming and entrancing, while the characters are as quirky as they are charismatic. It is a timeless story featuring a spunky heroine that children will love, look up to and admire.

“Petra shows the reader that we don’t have to fight someone in order to win. Given the fact that Petra comes across some interestingly strange characters, she show the reader how to respect and appreciate an individual’s uniqueness. Together, they start a whole new wave of acceptance in her father’s kingdom. Children will love this unique 68 page chapter book and will be anxiously awaiting the other books in The Pen Pieyu Adventures Series.”
 - Renee Hand, Multi-Award Winning & Amazon Best Selling Author, The Crypto-Capers and Joe-Joe Nut Series

For Parents, Teachers and Librarians

A great story about respect, kindness, friendship, and the acceptance of others.

“I highly recommend Sir Princess Petra for school, public, and personal library collections. Sir Princess Petra is an empowering story, a delightfully imaginative read and re-read, a tale that invites the reader on a fearless journey towards friendship and self-discovery.” Natalie Schembri, The University of Manitoba Book Reviews
