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.
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

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

unique 68 page chapter book and will be anxiously awaiting the other books in The Pen Pieyu Adventures
