The Bad Manor Girls Save Picturia
by Diane Johnson

Something terrible is happening to the beautiful city of Picturia, as the dreaded Ig unleashes The HAZE upon its unsuspecting citizens, spreading apathy and indifference to every street corner. Ig wants to ruin Picturia while no one is paying attention. When five girls move into Bad Manor, no one knows that they have special powers. But soon, mysterious shapes appear in the upstairs window of Bad Manor, and Picturians begin to see, hear, taste, smell, and feel many new and strange sensations. Will Ig’s evil plan unfold, or will the Bad Manor Girls save the city? With tongue-in-cheek humour reminiscent of classic Roald Dahl, The Bad Manor Girls Save Picturia is a delightfully engaging picture book, serving a much-needed reminder for all of us to wake up and admire the roses!

Diane Johnson has a BA Honours Psychology from the University of Victoria. While at UVic in the early 1970s, Diane lived in a six-bedroom character house in Oak Bay, on the outskirts of Victoria, British Columbia, with four other students. The experience of living in this shared home and idyllic municipality, combined with a growing awareness of Eastern spirituality and the emerging environmental movement, provided inspiration for the original version of The Bad Manor Girls Save Picturia. Diane, also known as Amethyst, currently lives in a small town near a large lake in beautiful British Columbia, where she enjoys Scrabble, Sudoku, pickleball, and being outdoors, especially when she is by the water.
