The Misadventures of Count Percival Overview
Canadian author and illustrator, Jadzia Cypress, has a passion admirable enough to make even the fiercest cynics bow down on their knees; She is passionate about creating a better future for humanity by fostering a new understanding of just what it means to live sustainably.
Jadzia’s first step toward this goal was to move to a small farm in rural Ontario, an experience so tumultuous that it has inspired her to share her story, and her wider vision, through a side-splitting new book of fiction perfect for little readers.
The Misadventures of Count Percival is based on the author’s own trials and tribulations in coming to terms with more sustainable living.
Although it may be the most important decision anyone will ever make in their life… nobody said it would be easy!
