Miss Butterworth Makes Her Debut!
May 10, 2022
Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron, JQ’s madcap, over-the-top graphic novel, beautifully illustrated by her sister Violet Charles, is NOW AVAILABLE in ebook and print. Check out the gorgeous, visual excerpts, then order your copy for a romp of an adventure.
UPDATE May 20: JQ has posted her Inside the Story Author’s Notes — don’t miss it!
Want JQ to sign it? Of course you do! All autographed copies will receive a full 6-piece set of limited-edition Butterworth pigeon magnets, currently available nowhere else!
New-to-JQ-readers can look forward to a sweet story with zany, over-the-top (did we mention over-the-top?) calamities and near misses that are both sweet and funny, with pages full of cute critters from bees to foxes to baby owls (and yes, pigeons). Long-time-JQ-readers will enjoy all of the above, plus inside jokes like the aforementioned pigeons, and hanging on for dear life from a variety of dangers such as tall trees and cliffs:
Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron was first mentioned in Hyacinth’s story, It’s In His Kiss, then returned again in a big way in the Bevelstoke series, and was was mentioned yet again in the wonderfully off-key Smythe-Smith Quartet.
How about an introduction from Lady Danbury herself?
Did you catch this recently-posted video of the incomparable Adjoa Andoh reading from Chapter 1 of It’s In His Kiss, precisely at the point where Hyacinth and Lady Danbury first mention Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron.
Check out those gorgeous first pages posted here on juliaquinn.com, get yours, and steer clear of those pigeons!
