The Lovereading4Kids comment

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 Merlin’s cat.

Lovers of Roald Dahl will delight in Sir Gadabout’s adventures.

Synopsis

Sir Gadabout by Martyn Beardsley

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.

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.

MARTYN BEARDSLEY Q&A

What would you rather be – a smuggler or a Revenue man?

On the A1 to Cambridge stuck in a traffic jam and needing to go for a wee. I almost didn’t make it!

A letter from the past like the one in the story. I’ve traced my own family tree and I love finding out more about people long ago.

Tea – it was one of the main smuggled items. I drink gallons a day and can’t write stories without it!

I think I’d build a fake toilet with horrible smells coming from it – they’d never look in there.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

LoveReading4Kids is a modern and creative way of emphasising the value and importance of books in this digital age #booksforlife

Amrit Bunet – Teen

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
