Bug Description

Hi,

Running Calibre 4.16.0 under Windows 10, when trying to get metadatas from a book using Amazon source, I'm facing an issue with some titles containing accentuated caracters like À, É, or even œ

The error message is :

InvalidURL: URL can't contain control characters. '/s/?sort=relevancerank&field-title=B\xc3\xa9atrix\xc3\x80&search-alias=stripbooks&unfiltered=1&field-author=Honor\xc3\xa9+Balzac' (found at least '\xc3')

Attached the full task log.

Thanks for your help and that wonderful software!

Best Regards,
Smeulf.
