When Princess Petra’s royal birthday comes, granting her anything her heart desires, she wishes to become a royal knight. Her parents aren’t too happy and tell her girls can’t be knights…but there is no official rule to stop her. Petra has to complete a task to become a knight and the task was to hush the howling, nasty dragon that lives in the forest of DOOM (which might not be as easy as it sounds 😉 ). Yet Petra, full of confidence, sets off to face all the dangers that a knight will face. Bees, hawks, beastly bog rats and enemy knights can’t stop Petra, but can she hush the dragon?
I liked this book because it has a great story line and a great message about believing in yourself. Petra proves that she and all girls can be daring, adventurous and brave. I think Petra was a great character and I liked Snarls (the dragon) even better because he had good sense and dragons are just cool. The book is a beginning chapter book so there isn’t a lot of details in it but it tells a complete story. The black and white illustrations in the book are really great too. The book is part of “The Pen Pieyu Adventures.” I hope that means there will be more books about Petra coming out! This book is an awesome beginning chapter book and a great read aloud…hey that gives me an idea…KEEP READING!!
