    Children's Book Author Diane Mae Robinson Is Finalist In Three Categories In Readers Favorite Awards

     
    Award winning Canadian author Diane Mae Robinson's latest children's book, 'Sir Princess Petra's Talent' has achieved finalist status in three separate categories in the 2014 Readers Favorite International Book Award Contest. She placed in the Children's Fantasy SciFi, Children's Grades K to 3rd and Children's Grades 4th to 6th.

    "I am pleased," Robinson stated, "to share this honor with notable authors such as Jim Carrey and many other very talented and well known children's book authors."

    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 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.

    Diane Mae Robinson is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at robinsond@mscnet.ca. More information, including reviews, information for teachers and librarians, a downloadable lesson plan and a special children’s section is available at her website.
