CHANDLER, AZ (June, 2017) – The judges of the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards contest, which recognizes excellence in children’s literature, have spoken, and The Tale of Prince by Bianca C. Staines, won Second place in the Animal/Pets category.
“Winning any place in the Purple Dragonfly Contest is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the Dragonfly Book Awards, a minimum score is required before a First or Second place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the sole entry in a category,” explains Linda F. Radke, president of Story Monsters LLC, the sponsor of the Dragonfly Book Awards. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”
The Tale of Prince is the story of a pompous pooch whose life changes when a stray joins the family. After a cat is found dead in his swimming pool and Bennie is dognapped, it will be up to Prince to seek out the stray and, on the way, find the wolf that lives inside every dog. It retails for $11.99 and can be purchased at Amazon, Book Depository and Smashwords.
