This time Sir Princess Petra must travel to the Land of the Boogy Gobees and capture the dreaded
Car-panther. There is no way that she will allow the King to sabotage her Knight status, so Petra embarks on a journey that will be filled with surprises and serendipitous encounters. And, of course, our feisty and resourceful little heroine, and her loyal friends, overcome all odds.
Once again, author Diane M. Robinson has invented a charming and fanciful story that also contains gently-placed ethical and moral principals. Along with creating characters that are engaging and self-confident, she instills in them honor in doing what is right and not just what is expedient and self serving. I enjoyed mostly in this adventure an elegant tribute to the importance of “tree souls” to the planet and its inhabitants, skillfully enveloped in the books plot line.
So, I won’t spoil the delightful, clever ending. Just know that she wins on a technicality, which is often how justice happens in real life!
Sir Princess Petra's Mission: The Pen Pieyu Adventures
Sir Princess Petra's Mission is book 3 in the series about a princess who would rather mess about with dragons than do embroidery (I'm with her on that score!).
This was the first book in the series I have read and while it is easy to read as a stand alone, I would recommend reading the series as well. So my first impressions were: I love the illustrations and the cool page borders; the hand drawn map was simplistic, but it looks like something the princess would have drawn, so that suits the story. The large print and short chapters were great for engaging young readers. My main issue was having to wade through to page 28 to get to the story. Maybe some of those endorsements could be moved to the back.
I enjoyed the names such as 'Boogey Gobees' and 'Prince Norton Nastybum' and my favourite saying is 'Thanks the crab gods!' 'I am glorious with hobnobbyish delight' is phrase I will endeavour to utilise more often myself in every day conversation. ;-) I love the way Snarls is sarcastic and funny and he gives PP a reality check after her below-par singing.
I do wonder the cause of the national obsession with onions. Ewww! Breath mints must be in constant use there. I was rather more amused by the food fight, for that is a much more worthy tradition in my humble opinion.
So, I would recommend you suck on an onion (actually that bit is optional), but definitely go out and grab a copy of Sir Princess Petra's Mission and help solve the mystery of the 'car-panthers.'
Thanks to the author for sending me a copy of this entertaining book to review. Recommended for readers aged 8-12. 4.5 stars
