Parents and children will love the hilarious and often disastrous escapades of Sir Gadabout and yet somehow Sir Gad manages to save the day along with his loyal side kick Herbert and Merlinâ€™s cat.
Itâ€™s laugh out loud funny for adult and child alike with some terrific jokes.
Lovers of Roald Dahl will delight in Sir Gadaboutâ€™s adventures.
Sir Gadabout is a walking disaster. Voted the "knight most likely to chop his own foot off in a fight", he shivers in his rusty armour when he has to face the brave Sir Lancelot in a joust.
Sir Gads travels with his loyal squire Herbert to the wizard Merlin's cottage to get his ear stuck back in place after the joust, and survives an attack by Merlin's crazed guard turtle. Then, when Queen Guinevere is kidnapped, Sir Gads sets out to save the day!
Join the loveable Sir Gadabout, loyal Herbert and Merlin's sarcastic cat, Sidney Smith, on a chaotic quest that will make every reader - child or adult - laugh out loud.
