The text and paintings on The Trowbridge Chronicles are taken from the illustrated journal of Violet Trowbridge, a shrew that once lived in a village deep in the Olympic Rain Forest. Each new post will represent a portion of Mrs. Trowbridge’s journal.

In the course of scribing and illustrating her now famous journal, The Trowbridge Chronicles, Mrs. Trowbridge found time to write and illustrate stories in her own unique voice. We would now call them graphic novels. One of my favorites is a story based on ancient Trowbridge legend. It's called The Legend of Shrew Khan. You may scroll down until you reach the beginning of the Shrew Khan story if you like.

After being forced to drinking a goblet of poison in his dungeon cell, Keno awakens in the palace infirmary. Emperor Nang is at his bedside.  Our story continues below, hand-scribed by Mrs. Trowbridge herself...

Stay tuned for the next episode of Mrs. Trowbridge's graphic novel, The Legend of Shrew Khan, coming soon.
